A Tampa man was arrested in the Keys Saturday for failing to pull over for deputies trying to stop him.

When he was finally stopped, he told officials they would go to jail for treason, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said Tyler Seeger, 19, was speeding in a black Nissan sedan by the 87 mile marker in the Keys and passing other cars illegally, almost causing a crash with a pack of motorcycles. When a deputy pulled up next to him to stop him, Seeger looked at the deputy, lit a cigarette and continued to drive, authorities said. Seeger later waved at another deputy that tried to stop him, according to authorities.

Deputies said they were finally able to stop him by setting up spikes in Seeger's path, causing him to surrender.

As he was being arrested, he asked if he could explain and told deputies, "You are all going to jail for treason," officials said.

Seeger was charged with fleeing and eluding police, speeding and improper passing.
