Man Destroys Flat Screen TV, Rams Vehicle into Flower Bed, Police Say

A Pasco man is accused of destroying a TV, then ramming his vehicle into a flower bed as he fled, according to authorities.

A Pasco County man is accused of entering a Largo residence around 12:30 a.m. Dec. 16 and destroying the flat screen TV, mirror and window. 

The suspect then left the residence, got into a 1999 Chevy van and backed into an ex-girlfriend's vehicle and pushed it up onto the curb, according to arrest affidavits.

Gordon Greggory Ormond, 49, allegedly "backed up and accelerated towards the victim's car striking it with enough force to cause it to be pushed approximately 50-feet into a raised flowerbed next to a mobile home," according to an affidavit.

"The victim's vehicle was inches from the mobile home. (Ormond) did this intentionally without regard for the victim's safety (she was standing near the vehicle)," police said.

Ormond allegedly fled the scene of the accident and was pulled over around 12:57 Jan. 16 by a Pinellas County Sheriff's deputy on County Road 611 in Safety Harbor, because he was reportedly driving without tail lights, according to an arrest affidavit.

Ormond got out of the vehicle and "was bleeding from his right forearm and had blood all over his shirt and pants."

A Largo Police officer came to the scene and took custody of Ormond, according to the report.

Ormond was arrested on the charges of: driving while license was suspended or revoked (third offense), reckless driving with property damage or injury, criminal mischief, violation of injunction for protection against domestic violence, driving under the influence crash with no injuries, leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage, threatening of a public servant, driving while license was suspended or revoked (second offense), and refusal to submit to testing.

Ormond was awaiting trial in Pinellas County Jail, on a total bond of $18,250, according to online sheriff's records.

Largo Police estimated total damage of $1,650 inside the residence and $3,000 to the vehicle, according to arrest affidavits.
