It's the moment you've been waiting for. "Florida man" has returned to the national news. Let's see what trouble he got himself into this time.
Orlando-based ABC affiliate WFTV reports Kevin Gaines Jr. was arrested Thursday night after authorities were able to figure out his location through his Instagram Live. Police were tipped off by the Crime Suppression Team when the vehicle that had been driven by Gaines Jr., who was wanted on several charges, was spotted in DeLand.
In order to confirm that Gaines Jr. was inside his home, police tuned into his Instagram Live to keep track of his whereabouts. Once they surrounded the residence, a spotlight was pointed into the window, causing him to end the livestream abruptly.
Authorities conducted a search of his house and found three guns with a fourth firearm discovered lying underneath a vehicle in the driveway. Gaines Jr. was charged with possession of a firearm by a delinquent.
Gaines Jr. faces two previous two counts of possession of a firearm by a delinquent, in addition to charges of discharging a firearm from a vehicle, fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, and driving with a suspended or revoked license. These charges stem from his arrest last year for his involvement in a drive-by shooting at a roller skating rink that injured one person.
We almost forgot to mention his prior warrants for grand theft auto, criminal mischief, and this isn't a typo, driving with a suspended or revoked license.
