An Ocala man was recently arrested after running from a deputy and breaking into a woman’s home to hide.
On Wednesday, July 7, a Marion County Sheriff’s deputy saw a Ford Fusion speeding in the 5600 block of NE 25th Avenue. He conducted a traffic stop and contact with 22-year-old De’Ante Chisholm, who said he did not have his driver’s license, according to an MCSO Facebook post.
Chisholm initially provided a false name and date of birth for himself, and the deputy discovered that information was not valid. While attempting to identify Chisholm with a fingerprint scanner, he put his vehicle in drive and sped away. The deputy followed Chisholm and watched him crash into a fence a short distance away, at which time he exited the car and fled on foot, according to the Facebook post.
a K-9 responded to assist with a search for Chisholm. Deputies were alerted by a woman screaming in the neighborhood and she advised Chisholm had entered her home, battered her while begging her not to call law enforcement on him, then fled. A short time later, another victim advised she saw Chisholm as he was attempting to enter her home to hide, but he was unsuccessful because the doors were locked. Chisholm was eventually found near bushes and was taken into custody, according to MCSO.
Chisholm was placed under arrest and transported to the Marion County Jail with a bond set at $119,000. He faces a total of twelve charges including possession of marijuana and fleeing. A court date is set for August 2 at 1 p.m., jail records show.
