MARION COUNTY, Fla. – Florida sheriff's deputies pulled a man from a burning vehicle Sunday just moments after he crashed while trying to avoid capture.
Deputies said they received a call about an attempted home-invasion robbery involving a man who goes by the alias "Gold Teeth."
"Gold Teeth," who was later identified as Scott Michael Beekman, 28, was spotted in a white Dodge van in the parking lot of a convenience store.
When officers attempted to pull the van over, Beekman fled and a chase followed.
