Florida deputy records amusing rant about slow tortoise on road

A deputy from Marion County went on a funny tirade while he was held up in traffic due to a slow tortoise on the road.

Bryan Bowman with the Marion County Sheriff's Office recorded the wild encounter where he jokingly went on a rant. When he noticed the tortoise in the road, he flipped on his patrol car lights to slow down traffic until the reptile exited the road.

In the video, at first he films himself saying, “The nerve of this guy!”

“He’s literally going one mile-per-hour in a 30 mile-per-hour zone,” he added. “I mean, this guy is easily 100. He shouldn’t be on the roadways to begin with. I tried to talk to him, but he snapped at me. I don’t know what this guy’s deal is.”

He flipped the camera forward to show the road, and the slow tortoise.

“Come on, grandpa! I got places to be,” he said. “Everybody wants to drive slow with a cop car behind. Can’t get nowhere on time.”
