BSO Sgt, Deputies rammed in Deerfield

Posted on 16 April 2014 by JLusk


Shortly after 3 a.m., BSO deputies were responding to a call from an Oakland Park resident that her car alarm was going off. A BSO sergeant en route to the home saw a Chevy Malibu with dark tinted windows leaving the area at a high rate of speed. The vehicle sped onto Interstate 95 and into Deerfield Beach, where the driver rammed a deputy’s vehicle and continued to flee. In the process, he hit two other BSO vehicles, incapacitating the Malibu. He then bailed out of the car and ran through a relative’s apartment, over a barbed-wire fence and into a field. BSO deputies used the helicopter and K-9s to track him, and he was eventually apprehended. Two of the deputies he rammed were transported to Broward Health North Medical Center. Their injuries do not appear to be serious.  A sergeant driving the third vehicle that was hit was uninjured. The suspect, Derek Fuller (10/21/87), was transported to the hospital for treatment of a dog bite before going to jail. Currently out of jail on bond, he faces multiple charges including three counts of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault, fleeing and eluding and possession of cocaine. BSO Violent Crimes Unit detectives are investigating the incident.
