[ARCHIVED] DWI Crash – Gun Arrest Made

On this date at 4:16 a.m., New Rochelle Police Officers responded to McDonald's at 280 Main St on a report of a Personal Welfare Investigation, man asleep at the drive through.  Upon arrival, officers observed a black Mercedes occupied by a Male/Hispanic (later identified as Louis Florimon, aged 21 of the Bronx), asleep at the wheel.  Officers attempted to wake him but he appeared intoxicated.  Shortly after he woke, Officers were able to open his driver's side door for further interview.  

Officers then observed what appeared to be a barrel of a handgun under his thigh, at which time Officers attempted to remove Mr. Florimon from the vehicle to place him under arrest. A Police Officer sustained an injury at his time.  Mr. Florimon was able to put the vehicle in drive and fled at a high rate of speed. New Rochelle Police Officers did not pursue the vehicle. A broadcast was made to surrounding Police Departments.

A short time later, Pelham Manor Police Department advised that the vehicle had crashed at Boston Post Road & Pelhamdale Avenue.  Pelham Manor Police Department Officers extracted him from the vehicle as it rolled over and struck two other vehicles.  

A .40 caliber Smith & Wesson handgun (stolen out of Florida) with a fully loaded magazine was recovered.  Mr. Florimon was then transported to Jacobi Hospital as he sustained non-life-threatening injuries from the accident.  

He was booked in absentia for the following charges: Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd degree, Assault 2nd degree, Criminal Possession Stolen Property 4th degree, Unlawful fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle 3rd degree, Driving While Intoxicated 1st Offense
