[UPDATE] 3-15 8:15am --

TPD releases probable cause:

On 3/11/2011 at 9:45 PM I was dispatched to the area of W Gaines St and Railroad Ave in reference to a hit and run that just occurred. The complainant, Laurie Creasy, was advising that the crash involved a blue Honda and green pick-up truck and that her boyfriend, victim Colin Creasy, jumped into the back of the suspect vehicle, which was the green pick-up.

Officer McInnis 775 arrived first and made contact with the complainant. The complainant advised that the green pick-up was an older model Chevrolet pick-up and that the suspect was a white male wearing a brown shirt and blue shorts. Shortly after I arrived, dispatch advised that the victim was at 210 Satsuma Street and that the driver of the suspect vehicle was Wyatt Sexton, the arrestee. I proceeded to go that address and make contact with the victim.

I arrived at 210 Satsuma St and observed the victim and the suspect vehicle, Fl tag 096YBM. The vehicle is registered to the arrestee. I spoke with the victim who provided the following account: He was stopped at the traffic light at Railroad Ave and W Gaines St. He was in the northbound left turn lane waiting to turn left onto W Gaines St. Suddenly he was rear-ended by the suspect vehicle. He and the arrestee got out of their vehicles and assessed the damages. The arrestee insisted that there was no damage and that calling the police was not necessary, and that they could drive out of the road and down to the Warehouse to exchange information. After he told the arrestee that he wanted to call the police, the arrestee ran back to his truck and attempted to drive off. The victim ran after the arrestee and then went to the back of the truck to get the tag number. The arrestee continued to drive off so the victim jumped into the back of the truck.

The arrestee saw the victim in the back of the truck and began to drive recklessly in an attempt to throw the victim out of the truck. The victim continued to yell for help and kept waving at passing cars. When they arrived at S Monroe St and W Gaines St, the arrestee yelled at his passenger to get out. The arrestee continued to drive until he arrived at his house, 306 E Call St. The arrestee got out of his truck and began yelling at the victim about his mental health and about how he was going to get locked away for 45 years. The arrestee then handed the victim his driver's license. The victim then asked if they were at the arrestee's address but he did not respond. The victim was frightened so he began to walk to a house with a light on. The arrestee chased after him and tackled him. He did say that the arrestee was trying to get his license back. The arrestee pushed the victim down and he curled into a ball. Once the arrestee got his license back he got back into his truck and tried to run away. The victim got back into the back of the truck. The arrestee drove a short distance around the corner, 210 Satsuma St, and got out of his vehicle. The victim asked the arrestee if this was his address. The arrestee responded with a 'Nope' and ran off. This is when he ran into 210 Satsuma St and called the police.

While I was talking the victim and began gathering information about the arrestee, the arrestee returned to 210 Satsuma St. He started to say that it was a big misunderstanding and that he just went home to grab a couple beers. He said that he just wanted to give me his information and settle the whole thing. I asked him to tell me what happened. He gave me a very similar account to the victim's. He said that he did 'bump' into the victim's car. He got out of his truck and tried to avoid calling the police and just exchange information. He said that he wanted to get out of the road and that is why he offered to go to the Warehouse. The Warehouse is a small pool hall that is just down the road o W Gaines St. He said the victim didn't want to move the vehicles and wanted to call the police. He said that he left because he didn't think there was any damage and he didn't want to wait forever for the police while being parked in the middle of the road.

He said that when he drove off he saw the victim jump in the vehicle but he did not drive recklessly. He told me that he drove very carefully to his house and that when he arrived to his house he handed the victim his driver's license. The victim then took off with his license and he thought he was trying to steal it. He ran after the victim and tackled him to get his license back. Once he got his license he took off to his house because he was afraid the victim would hurt him.

The arrestee knew he was involved in a traffic accident where he was the driver of a vehicle involved. He is required to stay on scene and provide his personal identification and insurance information to the driver of the other vehicle. He willfully left the scene without providing that information and therefore fulfilling the requirements of F.S. 316.061. Therefore he is charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage to an attended vehicle. He was transported to the Leon County Jail.
