Man faces multiple charges after striking mom with car at school, police say

Jarod Rose, 25, accused of fleeing scene after hitting North Miami Beach High School teacher with car

NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A man is facing multiple charges after he allegedly struck his mother with his car at North Miami Beach High School and then fled the scene.

Jarod Rose, 25, was arrested Monday afternoon on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, fleeing and eluding police, and resisting arrest without violence.

Rose appeared in bond court Tuesday where a judge ordered him to be held in jail on a $28,500 bond. Rose refused to speak to the judge in court.

According to an arrest report, Rose struck his mother with his burgundy Chevrolet Impala and was spotted by police driving west on Northeast 167th Street toward Sixth Avenue.

Police attempted to pull Rose over, but said he rammed into three cars in an attempt to escape from them. Police said the car became disabled after he struck the third vehicle.

According to the report, Rose failed to comply with officers' commands to exit the car. Police said officers tried to pull Rose out of the car, but he held onto the steering wheel, causing officers to deploy a Taser on his left shoulder and chest.

Police said Rose continued to grip the steering wheel, so an officer got into the backseat and held Rose's arms while other officers pulled him from the car.

Rose was taken to Jackson North Hospital before being taken to jail.   

Miami-Dade County Public Schools police is handling the investigation and told Local 10 News that Rose was visiting his mother, who is a teacher at the school.

The woman was taken to the hospital. Her condition and identity has not been released.

"Although not a school-related incident, it is unfortunate that a domestic dispute between a mother and son would result in harm to one of our teachers," a school district spokeswoman said in a statement. "We will collaborate with law enforcement and provide whatever support is needed to ensure a speedy recovery."
