Reports say that an Okaloosa County, Florida man now faces multiple charges after deputies deployed tasers to subdue him while he attempted to flee on a John Deere riding lawnmower. This apparently was not the man's first run in with authorities, as he previously evaded arrest by diving into a swamp.

According to reports, one Florida man now sits in the Okaloosa County Jail without bond after his multiple run-ins with law enforcement.

Authorities reportedly say that in January, the now-arrested man had gotten away from law officers who were attempting to ask him about a stolen boat valued at $40,000. Deputies found the man on the boat in question in a swamp along the Yellow River. But, per reports, the man dove off of the side of the boat and disappeared into the swamp in order to avoid being put behind bars.

The Florida man's luck ran out more recently, when authorities located him on a riding John Deere lawnmower. Still, the Florida man refused to go down without a fight and kicked the mower into high gear in an attempt to escape arrest once again per reports.

After refusing to stop the John Deere lawnmower, the Florida man was tased by authorities and arrested. Once in custody, authorities reportedly found a revolver, a handcuff key, and a pipe containing methamphetamine residue on the man.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
