 Warren Frazier, 23, was located and arrested last Thursday by the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Task Force.

Frazier, who is known to lawn enforcement to resist arrests, was wanted by the Levy County Sheriff’s Office on an outstanding arrest warrant for felony fleeing/attempting to elude, leaving the scene of an accident and driving while his license was suspended or revoked.

The original warrant stemmed from an incident April 2 where Frazier was spotted by a Levy County deputy driving a vehicle in East Williston, according to a press report.

When the deputy activated his lights, Frazier allegedly accelerated and ran a stop sign. The deputy ended chase and later found Frazier’s vehicle crashed into a nearby home, but Frazier was nowhere to be found. Damage to the home was estimated at $1,000.

The task force relied on information that Frazier would be at his girlfriend’s residence April 10 and at 7 a.m.,  along with investigators from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and the Gainesville Police Department, surrounded the mobile home on 37th Place.

The press release said neither Frazier or his girlfriend came out of the residence despite commands to exit.

After contacting them by phone, the girlfriend left the residence around 8:30 a.m. and was followed a few minutes later by Frazier. 

Frazier was taken into custody by members of the task force and booked into the Levy County Jail.
