LAKELAND, Fla. - The father of the man who led police on a high speed chase Friday following an alleged crime spree that included robbery and the rapes of several women near the USF area said he watched it all unfold on live television.
"It's hard," said Jeryl Coleman tearfully in an exclusive interview with ABC Action News on Saturday. "If I didn't know my son, I'd go along with what everybody's saying," he said. "But I know him and I know he wouldn't do that, all that they said, you know?" he said.
