Fatality Investigated
March 13, 2014
The Levy County Sheriff’s Office
responded to Rivals Bar located at 439 Highway 40 West in Inglis, Fl., shortly
before midnight on March 11, 2014. A patron called 911 reporting a fight
between multiple people inside the bar. 911 communications officers continued
updating Deputies as they responded. The 911 caller described a Jeep leaving
the scene and told dispatchers the Jeep was occupied by the people involved in
the fight.
A responding LCSO deputy located
the vehicle east bound on SR 40 in the Town of Inglis. He turned around to conduct a traffic
stop. As the deputy gained on the vehicle, he observed a person lying in the
road. The deputy immediately stopped to render aid and observed the Jeep pull
into an adjacent parking lot. Additional responding units contacted the driver
and occupants. Statements taken on scene by Deputies determined the occupant
jumped from the moving vehicle in an attempt to avoid apprehension.
The victim, a 39 year old Inglis
resident succumbed to his injuries. His name is being withheld until proper
family notification has been completed. The investigation is continuing.
