43 year old Michael Alan Shelatz was charged with interfering with child custody on July 29, 2014 after a seventeen year old missing juvenile from Seminole County was found at his Springwood Drive home. According to Shelatz the boy contacted him on July 5th and said he was leaving home so Shelatz picked him up in Sanford and brought him back to Spring Hill. Shelatz is an old friend of the boy’s family but no longer speaks to them. He told authorities that the boy runs away from home on a regular basis and comes to his residence. Shelatz did not attempt to contact the boy’s parents after he went missing and the two were smoking marijuana together just before police made contact with them. Shelatz is being held on a $2,000 bond.

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to mile marker 304 on I75 to help a disabled vehicle just after midnight on July 28, 2014. Jason Matthew Brock told deputies his car battery was dead. A run of Brock’s information revealed that his license was suspended. He said that he knew it was but advised he wasn’t driving. According to the arrest report, Brock was jumpy and a pill bottle was in plain view inside the vehicle. When deputies asked about the bottle Brock advised that he takes Xanax and gave permission for them to remove the pill bottle from the vehicle. It contained methamphetamine, Xanax, and Lithiumcarbonate. Brock became irate when questioned about the methamphetamine. He was placed into custody and when the deputy attempted to search his pockets Brock pushed the deputy backwards into oncoming traffic, almost causing him to be run over by a tractor trailer. The two fell into the roadway where Brock continued to try and kick the deputy and curse, yelling “You don’t have any case. You don’t got s—. So what if my pill bottles has my drugs in it. The judge will let me off and a jury of my peers will make you look like a f—— idiot.” Once in the patrol car he continued to bang his head against the patrol car window while screaming profanities, saying “I’ll just tell them that I’m bi-polar, you still don’t have s—.” Brock was placed under arrest for Possession of Methamphetamine and Resisting with Violence.
