At around 11:26 pm on June 20, 2023, a deputy sheriff from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, serving on the Problem Area Crime Enforcement (PACE) Unit, initiated a traffic stop on a silver Infiniti due to a traffic violation. The deputy activated the emergency lights and siren, prompting the vehicle to eventually come to a halt, maintaining a speed of approximately 15 mph before stopping.
Approaching the driver’s side of the vehicle, the deputy made contact with the driver and sole occupant, identified as Leslie Brock. During the interaction, the deputy noticed an open baggie on Leslie’s lap, which appeared to be torn. Additionally, there were several small white flakes resembling cocaine scattered across Leslie’s shorts, face, and beard.
Despite being ordered to exit the vehicle multiple times, Brock repeatedly refused to comply with lawful commands to open the driver’s door and exit the vehicle. During the process of removing Brock from the vehicle, the torn open baggie fell to the ground.
While under custody, Brock spat out a white substance on multiple occasions, which was later determined to test presumptive positive for cocaine. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) were summoned to the scene, and Brock was subsequently transported to Advent Health Palm Coast for further medical attention due to the ingestion of a substantial quantity of narcotics. Currently, Brock remains in custody at Advent Health, pending medical clearance.
Brock was taken into custody and charged with multiple offenses, including Resisting Arrest without Violence, Possession of Cocaine, and Tampering with Evidence.
