Two Arrested After Battery On Florida Highway Patrol Trooper

FORT MYERS, FL. -- Two men were arrested after midnight on Sunday December 8, after an altercation with an FHP Trooper at a gas station on U.S. 41.

At approximately 12:16 am, a Florida Highway Patrol Trooper observed a car enter the 7-11 gas station on US 41 at Littleton Road in North Fort Myers at a high rate of speed, squealing its tires.

Once in the parking lot, the driver Jose Crismatt age 22, exited his vehicle and was approached by the trooper. At this point, the driver ignored the verbal request of the trooper. In the meantime, a second vehicle, driven by Alexander Crismatt age 20, pulled into the same parking lot and exited his vehicle.

Alexander Crismatt was verbally told by the trooper not to interfere and to leave the location of the traffic stop, but Crismatt refused to comply. Both subjects then approached the trooper in an aggressive manner and a physical altercation ensured resulting in the eventual arrest of Jose Crismatt on scene. 

Alexander Crismatt fled the scene in his vehicle but later turned himself in without further incident. Jose Crismatt was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, marijuana/paraphernalia possession, and DUI. 

Alexander Crismatt was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest. Both subjects were booked into the Lee County Jail.

As a result of this incident, the trooper sustained minor injuries but was not transported to the hospital. This incident remains under investigation, said the FHP.
