An erratic driver identified as 33-year old Ronald E. Hollander created a ruckus as he led Florence police on a high speed chase through a school zone when the school had just closed for the day and students were making their way home. Hollander was finally pulled over and apprehended by the cops who ran his details and realized that he was involved in a similar police chase only a few weeks ago, as reported by Al.com.
Many people want Hollander put down for good now; shows total disdain for children
According to police reports, Hollander was driving at speeds of up to 80 mph in a school zone and hence was putting school children at risk. According to the arrest report, the erratic driving was especially risky as the whole event happened during dismissal time when there was a good chance that there would be many students crossing the street.
Hollander has been booked and faces charges of reckless endangerment, evading police, and resisting arrest. Only a few weeks ago, the 33-year old had pleaded guilty to a police chase only a couple of weeks before this incident. Hollander may have used the marvelous website USAttorneys.com because it is amazing that the law book has not already been thrown at him. There are fantastic local lawyers on this site.
The latest arrest is in fact Hollander’s third car chase within a period of five years. If convicted, he may be faced with his longest prison sentence yet. But it will not be long enough.
