BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton man driving recklessly in West Palm Beach allegedly fled the area southbound on Federal Highway in a Dodge Challenger that had two flat tires.

The tires were so flat that sparks were seen shooting from the car. (Police report appears below, if reading in a news app, click here).

Matthew Robinson, of the 6100 block of NW 2nd in Boca Raton, was found by PBSO after a “be on the lookout” was issued. He was allegedly hiding in his car in Lake Worth. As police approached, they say they saw him hiding something in the car. Fearing it was a weapon, they “extracted” Robinson from the car, then found the suspicious item. Cocaine.

“During the extraction,” wrote police, “I noticed a clear plastic bag containing a white rock like substance… Based on my training and experience… I know this substance to be crack cocaine.”

Robinson was arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. He is now facing the charge of “possession of crack cocaine.”

Bond was set at $1000, which Robinson posted several hours after his arrest on Wednesday.
