Anthony Gene Thomas of Broward, Florida was arrested on January 17 for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl from Brevard County and soliciting pornographic images and videos from her.
Thomas, 41, allegedly connected with the victim through the widely popular online video game Fortnite. His arrest was announced on Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody’s website.
According to news sources, the car crash occurred at around 8:30 a.m. on November 23 in the eastbound lanes of State Road 84, east of SW 148th Avenue in Davie.
The cyclists were members of a group called Cycling Family Broward. They regularly ride in the Davie area on weekends, although in much larger numbers. That Sunday’s ride began at 7:30 a.m. in Pembroke Pines and was to last for three hours, sources say.
Bradley Ruben of Hollywood, Florida is accused of causing a fatal car crash on I-95 that led to the death of Juan Pedro Garcia of North Bay Village, and attempting to run from the scene of the accident.
Ruben, 32, is charged with resisting arrest and failing to stop at an accident involving death. During his first-appearance court session on Thursday, prosecutors asked for a $100,000 bond out of concern that Ruben might flee the state because he’s a professional poker play who has made a lot of money.
