EGLIN AFB — The 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) soldier who went missing from his Crestview apartment Jan. 14 remained in a South Florida jail Tuesday.
Sgt. Greco A. Tucker, 23, is being held in Collier County on a $7,000 bond on charges of resisting a law enforcement officer with violence and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
According to a Collier County Sheriff's Office report, Tucker, whose name was placed in a nationwide missing-persons database shortly after his disappearance, was pulled over shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday near the beach in Naples.
Tucker was stopped by a deputy who recognized the license number on the white 2014 Dodge Charger he was driving. Tucker fled and was apprehended after a chase during which a Taser was fired twice at him.
Tucker pulled a knife on the pursuing deputies and was taken into custody after "a brief struggle," according to the Sheriff's Office report. Because Tucker had been struck by a Taser, emergency medical personnel were called. Tucker was taken to a Naples hospital after his blood pressure and blood sugar were discovered to be low.
Also according to the Sheriff's Office report, Tucker told deputies he had come to Naples specifically to commit suicide. Tucker told one deputy "he did not wish to speak" about his circumstances, according to the report.
Naples Jail Center records show a Feb. 11 court date has been set for Tucker.
