Florida Man’s Wild Night: Smoking Oxycodone, Falling Asleep at Traffic Light, and Getting Arrested!

HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. – A man from Florida is in jail because he fell asleep behind the wheel and blocked an intersection.

Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies were sent to the corner of East Early Street and East Jefferson Street in Brooksville on Wednesday just before 12:30 a.m. because there was a Highway Obstruction there.

It was said that a car was blocking the intersection because the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel.

When the sheriff’s deputies got there, they found a Chevy Silverado truck with a trailer hooked up to it. The driver, whose name was later found to be Jordan Styles, was sleeping in the driver’s seat. The truck was still running and in “drive” when deputies arrived.

When deputies approached Styles, they saw a piece of burnt aluminum foil and a small straw on his lap. These are things that are often used to take illegal drugs.

When deputies asked Styles about the items, he said he used them to smoke Oxycodone because his ankles hurt. Sheriff’s deputies told Styles to put the truck in “park” and get out.

The Hernando County Fire and Emergency Services team came to check on Styles. Styles said he did not want to be treated or be taken to the hospital.

During a search of Styles’ car, deputies found a blue plastic baggie with 5.7 grams of a crystal-like substance that later tested positive for Methamphetamine, a plastic baggie with 0.4 grams of a white powder-like substance that later tested positive for Fentanyl, five blue pills that later turned out to be Oxycodone, and a plastic baggie with 278.7 grams of a green leafy substance that later tested positive for the presence of.

A Summerville American Tactical 22 long rifle was also found along with the illegal drugs. There were eight rounds of ammunition in the gun.

When deputies looked into Styles’s past, they found that he had been convicted of a crime and was not allowed to own or have guns or ammunition.

Styles was taken into police custody and taken to the Hernando County Detention Center. Styles wouldn’t talk to the deputies about the things they found in his car. Styles’ car was taken away by a tow truck.

Jordan Robert Styles, who is 24 years old, was charged with:

  • Without a prescription for a controlled substance (4 counts).
  • Convicted Felon in Possession of a Weapon or Ammo (2 counts)
  • Possession of items used to make drugs.

Deputies asked that Styles’ bond be taken away because he was wanted in Sumter County and Hillsborough County.
