A Soldier assigned to the 7th Special Forces Group who had previously been reported missing was taken to a South Florida jail after pulling a knife on Collier County deputies.
23-year-old Sergeant Greco Tucker was placed in a missing-persons database after vanishing from his Crestview apartment on January 14.
Tucker eventually turned up over 578 miles away from his duty station, around an 8.5-hour drive from Eglin Air Force Base.
Spotted in Naples by a Collier County deputy who recognized his vehicle license plate Tucker attempted to flee on foot after he was stopped.
During the chase, he had two Taser cartridges fired at him and he pulled a knife on the deputies.
After a short-lived struggle, Tucker was taken to the hospital, where it was revealed his blood pressure and blood sugar were low.
According to the The Destin Log, Tucker told authorities he drove to Naples in order to kill himself. Charged with resisting a law enforcement officer with violence and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, he is due in court next month and is being held on a $7,000 bond.
