[WATCH] Police Deputy Smashes Patrol Car Through Ex-Wife’s House While High on Prescription Drugs With Her Inside

This is the shocking moment a Sheriff’s deputy drove his car through his ex-wife’s wall while high on prescription drugs.

Timothy Stuart Taylor had phoned in sick for work saying that he had taken Xanax and didn’t feel like he could drive.

But newly-released dashcam footage from his sheriff’s office-issued truck shows him park outside his ex-wife’s house before reversing off the drive and momentarily waiting for traffic to pass.

His ex-wife can be seen in the doorway of the house before retreating inside.

Meanwhile, Taylor drives his car forward smashing through the porch and front wall of the home in Milton, Florida, reportedly causing £22,000 ($30,000) of damage.

According to t he Pensacola News Journal , Taylor was sentenced to two years probation in April after being charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor DUI for the November 2016 incident.

His ex-wife was uninjured in the crash.

According to reports, Taylor, who was 57 at the time, had told Milton police he was under the influence of prescription drugs and had tried to commit suicide by stabbing himself in the chest because of marital problems.

The defendant has now left his role as Escambla County Sheriff’s Office deputy and no longer works in law enforcement.
