Theoretical conversation: "The law’s on the way. Hide me, baby, hide me."
Deon Dorsey would have meant that literally. The Florida fugitive used a child to hide from Tallahassee Police Department officers.
Dorsey, 20, was wanted by police for violating his probation on a conviction of battery and trespassing.
So here’s how the U.S. Marshals say Dorsey hid: Dorsey wedged himself between a wall and the box springs of a mattress. A mattress was slid over his hiding spot and a child placed directly over him.
Apparently this kind of hiding behavior is not uncommon for people running from the police. The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force has found fugitives beneath clothes in a closet; in attic crawl spaces, inside the trunks of cars, walls, clothes dressers and, our favorite, inside refrigerators. However, using a child to hide from the law was apparently a new one.
Officers grew suspicious, however, and Dorsey was uncovered.
By the way, Dorsey was wanted as a suspect in a domestic battery case in which a victim was nearly strangled, according to U.S. Marshals. Dorsey’s current girlfriend, Maydreona Miles, is now in trouble for Obstruction of Justice after Miles repeatedly stated to officers that Dorsey was not inside the residence.
