Woman Gets Pulled Over Only To Realize It's Her Ex-Boyfriend - And That's A Problem

FOX 24 Charleston

We've all been there. You're driving down a long stretch of highway cruising to the radio, when all of a sudden a flash of red and blue starts up behind you. As you pull over all you can think about is "What have I done this time?"

Oftentimes it's nothing more than a turn signal left on or a broken taillight, but sometimes it can seem unfair. Unfortunately for a young couple in Florida, their crime was of passion, and one they didn't even commit.

When a patrol car came up behind Jamie DiCarlo and Robert Roberts and s siren went off, they naturally moved to stop on the shoulder. As it turns out, the driver of the patrol car wasn't in fact a police officer, but DiCarlo's recent ex-boyfriend, Christopher Combs, son of the local Sheriff.

Combs decided that he wasn't happy with his ex driving around without him, and once he had them pulled over that's when the trouble began.

Is all really fair in love and war? If not, then Christopher Combs is in a lot of trouble. The son of Palm Beach Sheriff stole his fathers patrol car to intercept his ex-girlfriend and new beau in order to teach them a lesson.

After Combs had the car pulled over, he used the loudspeaker system to order Roberts out of the car. Once out he ordered him to the ground and told him to empty his pockets. According to Roberts, someone else got out of a car and put a "metal object" to his head before stealing his wallet and pocket knife.

After the incident, DiCarlo called the police and investigators found the patrol car parked at a friends house with the engine still warm. During questioning, Combs was overheard saying how he was upset and had been "messing" with the couple.

Now under house arrest, he faces charges of armed robbery, impersonating an officer, and false imprisonment.
