Beulah Motorcyclist Charged With Fleeing From Deputies

July 21, 2021

A motorcyclist from Beulah is facing a felony charge after allegedly fleeing from an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy while traveling the wrong way on Pine Forest Road.

Broc Everett Ellis, 33, was charged with felony fleeing and eluding with wanton disregard for persons or property, resisting arrest without violence, operating a motorcycle without a motorcycle endorsement, and possession of marijuana.

The deputy observed a motorcycle pass another vehicle in an unsafe manner on Pine Forest Road near Sharon Lane. The deputy turned around and activated his emergency lights.

“I observed the operator, later identified as Broc Ellis, look back at me where he then accelerated into oncoming traffic,” the deputy wrote in his report. The deputy turned off his emergency lights and backed off due to Ellis traveling northbound in the southbound lane.

Ellis turned into the Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot where he struggled to get the motorcycle back on two wheels before proceeding down a dirt road in the area of Floral Tree Gardens, the report continues. His motorcycle was spotted at the woodline near Southern Self Storage on Pine Forest Road. Ellis ignored verbal commands to stop and fled on foot through the woods, the report states. Duncan’ Donuts employees pointed Ellis out to the deputy as he ran back toward the Walmart Neighborhood Market. The deputy caught up, and tackled Ellis.

Under the seat of Ellis’ motorcycle, deputies reported finding a plastic bag containing marijuana.

Ellis was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $12,000 bond.

    Linda this is not prison time but from what I’ve researched he’s actually a very productive part of society

    Wow!!! Instead of a misdemeanor simple possession charge! He now faces several felony charges, great example of a bad situation turning into something much worse! Not very bright.

    At 33 years old, he should be a mature young man. Obviously he has not learned how to be an adult in the 15 years he has been considered to be an adult in the eyes of the law. He put the lives of the people around him in danger yet he obviously does not understand that simple fact or he would have remorse on his face instead of that stupid smirk. He is just another dumb a** who wastes his life because he doesn’t want to grow up and behave like an adult. I’m guessing that prison will force him to grow up.

    Obviously not smart. Now he has a felony charge or two…or three. Must have been some strong weed but temporarily losing your mind on drugs is yet another charge there, Smirky.

    I saw this on Pine Forest Road. He literally drove the wrong way in the left southbound lane, in spite of oncoming traffic. Very dangerous.
