CLEARWATER – A triathlon worker was arrested for aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and fleeing/eluding on Nov. 11, according to Clearwater police.

Christopher Fusco, 43, of Holiday was working for the TriRock Triathlon as a day laborer when he allegedly loaded a Honda generator into the trunk of a 2005 Hyundai, the report said. Another employee reportedly saw him do it and confronted the suspect. Fusco said that the generator was his, but when challenged by the witness, Fusco removed it from his trunk and fled the scene in his vehicle. A Clearwater police officer found Fusco’s vehicle in the 600 block of South Gulfview Boulevard and initiated a traffic stop. Fusco failed to stop and took off at a high rate of speed, the report said.

While fleeing, Fusco “purposely” entered another responding police officer’s lane of travel, attempting to strike him head-on, the report said. The officer took evasive action to avoid the collision, and Fusco continued east on Bayway Boulevard at a high rate of speed. He was later located on Palm Island Northeast under a dock and was taken into custody.

Fusco is charged with escape, resisting an officer with violence, grand theft, burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, fleeing or eluding at a high rate of speed with wanton disregard, battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, and violation of a Pasco County charge of battery of a law enforcement officer. Bond for the Pinellas charges was set at $72,000. He is being held at the Pinellas County Jail.
