A Florida man wanted on a warrant was arrested after he fled from a traffic stop and called 911 to brag about getting away.

Nicholas Carlmann Jones, 19, allegedly said on the call “What do we pay you guys for? Like, I’ve driven past four cops,” according to Fox35.

Jones told the police he ran from the stop because he thought it would be “fun,” according to an arrest affidavit filed in the case.

Jones eventually was pulled over in St. Augustine.

In his car, authorities say, they found a jar full of marijuana, THC wax, a small bag containing an unknown white powder and a dish containing a pink tinted crystal substance, as well as several pipes and dishes.

Jones faces multiple drug charges.

He was taken to the St. Johns County Jail where he continued to joke and laugh about the incident, according to the news station.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
