Fla. Man "High on Xanax" Fires on Patrol Car

March 26, 2014  | 

A 20-year-old Apopka, Fla., man was arrested Tuesday after police said he admitted shooting up an Apopka police car at a 7-Eleven.

An anonymous tip led officers to Tyler Endsley, who told investigators he was high on Xanax and marijuana when he shot the patrol car with a 10-gauge shotgun about 4 a.m. Sunday, department spokesman Officer Ed Chittenden told the Orlando Sentinel.

Police arrested Endsley on charges of attempted armed robbery, use of a firearm during a felony, displaying a firearm in public and criminal mischief. They say he planned to rob the store at 1117 E. Semoran Blvd.

Security video shows someone wearing a hoodie and carrying a shotgun pacing in front of the convenience store and looking inside shortly before an Apopka police officer arrived to get coffee.

Obviously he mixed Xanax with meth or something else. Xanax is not a "high" since it is a downer and muscle relaxer. But I would be more than willing from his behavior to include meth in his diet. Florida has a huge Meth problem. all Pot is a felony in Florida and there is no misdemeanor marihuana laws. So when spring breakers come here with what is considered personal use pot in another state, in Florida it is a major felony and carries a hefty prison sentence. But this guy was on more than Xanax and pot.
