>> that's what you get!

>> enjoyed that a little too much. yes, the driver lost control of his vehicle, slammed into a light pole. we should mention, nobody was hit, no one got hurt. the driver fled the scene, but thanks to this video being posted, florida police later caught him. he was arrested, charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
