MARTIN COUNTY - A Stuart man was accused last week of stealing a car, fleeing a Martin County deputy, breaking a patrol car window and yelling slurs, according to an arrest affidavit.

Charles Patrick Wallace, 44, 2929 S.E. Ocean Blvd., Stuart, was arrested by the Martin County Sheriff's Office and charged with fleeing, driving without have a valid driver license, grand theft of an automobile, criminal mischief and resisting an officer without violence.

The arrest occurred after a man reported he and his daughter went into a convenience store and left the keys in his truck, which contained his work tools, the affidavit said.

When he returned, someone had stolen the vehicle, the affidavit said.

A deputy reported seeing the stolen vehicle and chasing it, the report said.

After the chase continued onto Southeast Flounder Road in Stuart, the vehicle stopped and the thief got out and ran toward a wooded area, the affidavit said.

The deputy chased Mr. Wallace for about 100 feet before nabbing him, the affidavit said.

After Mr. Wallace was placed into patrol car, he "began to kick the rear window and broke the window from the door frame," the affidavit said.

During the ride to the Martin County jail, Mr. Wallace banged his head against the separation wall between the front and the back and shouted slurs, the affidavit said.

He also used "perverted and vulgar language" when speaking to deputies in the vehicle and the jail, the affidavit said.
