Brice Andrew DiGiorgio of Lee County plead no contest to stealing a brush fire truck from a SWFL Firestation, driving with a suspended license, and fleeing or attempting to elude police.
This all started on Feb. 7th when police responded to a call at a Fort Myers Fire Department where a man was wearing a fire coat and eating the station’s food. He was evaluated to see if he was mentally stable and was determined to not be a threat.
Later that day he stole the fire truck and decided to go for a joyride from Lee county to Manatee county.
Police were dispatched and a chase ensued. It only lasted around 2 minutes but that was long enough to have all those charges slapped on him.
He was sentenced to 9 months of jail time with six months already served.
