VERO BEACH, Florida – A citizen flagged down an officer with the Vero Beach Police Department who said a man had pushed a skateboard ramp out of the Calvary Chapel and onto 10th Avenue.

The officer drove to the location and observed the skateboard ramp in the middle of the roadway obstructing traffic in Vero Beach.

Aaron Michael Parmeter, 29, was seen pushing the ramp on the road. The officer asked for his identification, and he yelled “fu** you” and took off running across a vacant parking lot, according to the report.

The officer chased Parmeter to SR 60 where he ran in front of cars, causing them to slam on their brakes. Another officer gave chase and finally brought Parmeter to the ground.

The suspect then stated, “fu** you pigs” and accused the Vero Beach Police of stealing his tablet, the report said.

A witness from the Calvary Chapel came forward and told officers the skateboard ramp belonged to the church.

Parmeter was arrested and transported to the Indian River County Jail where he was charged with Felony Grand Theft and for Resisting Arrest.

Bond set at $15,000. Jail records show that Parmeter has been arrested eight times.
