You can see that the end of the video that the 29 year-old mail truck driver, having been yanked out of the postal vehicle’s cargo area and now laying on the grass next to a bunch of USPS bins, admits to being under the influence of a number of drugs.


This is a bad idea, and one that landed him in a boatload of trouble.

Per the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office:

The driver, Jesse Estep, DOB 3/24/1990, is being arrested by FCSO for Grand Theft Auto, Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding, and two counts Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer. He will be transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility once medically cleared by the hospital. He faces charges in Volusia County also.


It’s sad, man, because, well, who steals a Grumman LLV? The vehicle’s “Iron Duke” four-cylinder sends 90-ish horsepower through a three-speed slushbox trying to give thrust to a vehicle with the aerodynamic properties of a barn. I guess if the guy found a motor pool of mail vehicles, I suppose he could have blended in and maybe gotten away?
