MARION COUNTY, Fla. — A Florida woman with meth-cooking ingredients in her pickup tried to outrun a deputy before a change of heart led her to pull over, get out of her truck and walk backward toward the cop with her hands behind her back to be handcuffed, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said.
Tina AnnMarie Gilmour was arrested June 30 after deputies say she had a backpack in her back seat with items used to cook methamphetamine.
The sheriff's office released the dash cam video today from the June 30 arrest in Silver Springs.
In the video, deputy Jason Hunt begins pursuing Gilmour, 28, after he saw her driving and recognized her from a few days earlier, when he issued her a notice to appear for driving with a non-valid license.

“MY FUTURE IS BRIGHT, NO DRUGS IN SIGHT”- TRAFFIC STOP LEADS TO METH ARREST On Friday, June 30, 2017, MCSO Deputy Jason Hunt was leaving a call for service and observed defendant Tina AnnMarie Gilmour (DOB: 12/08/1988) turning north onto SE 170th Avenue Road from East Highway 40 in a red Ford pickup truck. Deputy Hunt had just issued Gilmour a Notice to Appear several days beforehand for Driving while License Suspended or Revoked, soooo he knew she shouldn’t be driving! Deputy Hunt attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Gilmour’s vehicle, and Gilmour began to flee. But when Deputy Hunt began to pursue her, Gilmour had a change of heart..she immediately pulled over, got out of the vehicle and quickly put her hands behind her back so Deputy Hunt could take her into custody. Gilmour’s passenger, co-defendant James Edward Mincey (DOB: 08/07/1966), had a backpack in the backseat of Gilmour’s truck that contained bottles and ingredients used to cook Methamphetamine. One of the bottles containing meth has the phase, “My Future is Bright, No Drugs in Sight” on it. Oh, the irony! Gilmour and Mincey were both arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail. Gilmour is being charged with Driving while License Suspended or Revoked and Mincey is being charged with Trafficking Methamphetamine, Possession of Oxycontin and Possession of Diazepam.Posted by Marion County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday, July 25, 2017
"Soooo he knew she shouldn’t be driving!" the sheriff's office posted on Facebook.
But before the Friday afternoon pursuit through the rural, wooded area could reach the drama level of another recent Marion County police chase, in which terrified cows ran for their lives as a Florida man led deputies through a cattle field in a high-speed chase earlier this month, Gilmour quickly realized the gig was up.
The video shows the belly-shirt-clad defendant stopping on a dirt road and calmly walking toward Hunt before she turns to offer him her wrists for cuffing.
Gilmour’s passenger, James Edward Mincey, 50, had a backpack in the back seat with items used to cook methamphetamine, the sheriff's office said.
Among the items found in the pickup were a plastic bottle containing meth and printed with the phase "My Future is Bright, No Drugs in Sight."
Gilmour was charged with driving while license suspended or revoked. Mincey was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of oxycontin and possession of diazepam.
