BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA (WFTV) – An injured 28-year-old Palm Bay man already in custody after leading officers on a chase through Melbourne, tried again to run Saturday while being discharged from the hospital, police said.

Melbourne police officers reported that they saw what they thought was an impaired driver in the area of U.S. 1 and W.H. Jackson Street at about 2:15 a.m.

When they tried to conduct a traffic stop, the driver, later identified as Devin Martinez, sped up and tried to elude the officers, the Melbourne Police Department said.

The officers were able to locate Martinez on Horne Street, but he allegedly drove directly toward their police cruiser in an attempt to ram them, investigators said.
