Deputies in Sarasota arrested Pontoon on Wednesday for a host of charges after he’d been on the run since last year. The 28-year-old Pontoon has been arrested over the years on a laundry list of charges, from drugs, fleeing, fraud, aggravated assault, grand theft, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and on and on and on. Criminal defense attorneys and law enforcement officials say Pontoon’s story isn’t unique in Florida. Criminals commit crimes, get arrested, get a light sentence, get out, and commit more crimes. And so it goes.
