GREENACRES, Fla. — A man found sleeping in his car at an intersection led police on a chase before being arrested in a Greenacres gated community.

Twenty-one-year-old Joslet Jean-Charles was asleep behind the wheel at a busy intersection around 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Police received several calls about the 2003 Ford Taurus.

Police pulled a patrol car in front of Jean-Charles, who awoke, put his car in reverse, drove around the police car and fled. He abandoned the vehicle at the gate of a development.

Police did not initially find Jean-Charles, but arrested him at an address found on a bill inside the car.

He was charged with fleeing and alluding, operating without a license, resisting arrest and a probation violation. He remains in Palm Beach County Jail on $7,000 bail.
