Clay hit-and-run suspect arrested

MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- The Clay County Sheriff's Office arrested a man suspected of causing two hit-and-run crashes on Monday.

Dudley Webb, 75, has been charged with two felonies: aggravated assault and fleeing a police officer. Each charge carries a bond of $50,000, according to CCSO spokesperson Mary Justino.
According to a police report, he was speeding and refused to pull over. They say at one point, Webb was traveling 90 mph in a 35 mph zone on County Road 209.

He then slowed down to 25 mph in a school zone, according to the report, and tried to hit an officer with his car. Webb was eventually stopped by flattening his tires with stop sticks.

Deputies were initially going to arrest Webb on Monday, but decided it would be better for him to be hospitalized at Orange Park Medical Center even though he was not injured.
