Woman fleeing police says “getting arrested” was on her bucket list

A 19-year-old Homestead, Florida woman was arrested Thursday morning and charged with fleeing from a deputy, and then admitted getting arrested was on her bucket list.

Janiya Shaimiracle Douglas was charged with fleeing and eluding police.

Sgt. Robert Dosh observed a southbound Toyota sedan speeding and driving recklessly on Card Sound Road at approximately 7:47 a.m., according to a post on the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page.

“Sgt. Dosh turned on his lights and siren, but the Toyota did not stop and continued southbound until finally stopping at the 3-way intersection at County Road 905,” the post continues.

Douglas, who told police that getting arrested had been on her bucket list since high school, was taken to jail.
