Florida man attempting to evade arrest was found ‘folded’ in ‘remarkably small’ clothes dryer

A 31-year-old man wanted in connection with a March 15 shooting was found hiding inside a “remarkably small” dryer by deputies as he tried to evade arrest.

In a statement on Friday, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said David Jerome Jackson was wanted for shooting into a dwelling, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, damage to property, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Deputies with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office ultimately responded to a home off Edgewater Drive on May 17 after receiving a tip about Jackson being at the said location, the statement said.

“With the assistance of our warrants unit, deputies entered the home and began to search for Jackson,” the statement continued. “After an extensive search, deputies proceeded to the laundry room, where they finally discovered Jackson, folded, not so neatly inside a remarkably small dryer drum. The look on his face, a combination of guilt, embarrassment, and warm hosiery.” 

The statement said Jackson was subsequently “pulled from the dryer one limb at a time, as he clung to his tumble-ready hideout.” “Outside the dryer, deputies removed three dryer sheets, two mismatched socks, and a crumpled-up tissue from his surprisingly wrinkled Star Wars shirt,” the statement added.

Jackson, who was taken into custody, is being held at the Escambia County Jail on a $120,000 bail, the New York Post reported.
