Police arrested a Naples, Florida man identified as Jeffrey Rouse on Saturday (August 15) on multiple charges, including escape and evasion, assault and two criminal charges.
In a Facebook post, the Collier County Sheriff's office named 40-year-old Rouse as the man who was recorded in a racist rant against a black woman while standing at a traffic light both days before his arrest.

On Friday evening (August 14), MPs tracked Rouse after their radar found he was going more than 100 mph. MPs put an end to the pursuit of safety for other drivers in the region. The officers took him into custody at his home the next morning.
Detectives at the sheriff's office said someone took pictures of Rouse on Aug. 8, who disfigured two political signs. When Rouse noticed someone was photographing him, he threw racial slurs at the person and threatened to harm them. One of the illegible signs was racial fraud.
In the viral video, Rouse repeatedly calls the woman the N word and tells her that black life doesn't matter.
The police asked the prosecutor to improve the hate crimes.
“Florida's Hate Crimes Law improves the level of crime and punishment when it is demonstrated that a crime was based on race, color, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, homeless status, or advanced age of the victim. Said the sheriff's statement.
Detectives said they are still investigating the incident at the lights.
