Amputee driver sentenced to prison

Florida man to serve 5 years on felony drug, driving charges

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. - A man with no arms and one leg who wouldn't stop driving despite a long list of traffic violations was sentenced to five years in prison Friday on felony driving and drug charges.

Michael Francis Wiley, 40, also was sentenced to 15 years of drug offender probation. He pleaded no contest in June to the charges.

"I'd just like to say I know what I did was wrong," Wiley said in court Friday. "I am truly sorry, your honor. I am."

Wiley taught himself to drive after losing both arms and a leg in an electrical accident when he was 13. He has already spent more than three years in prison for habitually driving without a license, kicking a state trooper and other charges.

He once had a valid license, but it has been suspended several times since 1985, according to his attorney. He starts the car with his toes, shifts with his knee and steers with the stump of his left arm. He turns on the lights with his teeth.

In his most recent brush with the law last May, Wiley sped off in a Ford Explorer when police approached him at a convenience store, officials said. Officers pursued but called off the chase after eight minutes because they did not want to put others in danger, police said.

Defense attorney John Hooker pleaded for leniency and the minimum sentence of 2 1/2 years. He cited his client's need for treatment for his many physical and mental health problems, including anxiety, panic attacks, depression and a pain disorder related to his amputations.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Wiley said he's done driving.

"I'm beat. The white flag is up," he said. "You can only bang your head against the wall so long before it hurts."

Still a better driver than any woman or Asian I've ever seen.

He lost both arms and a leg when he hit the 3rd rail in an abandoned
NY train yard. The guy's a fucking maniac. Gotta love a story like this.



Which brings us to Tuesday, about 12:50 p.m., when a New Port Richey Police officer spotted Wiley in a suspicious vehicle - a blue Ford Explorer - at a convenience store off U.S. 19, according to Capt. Darryl Garman. When the officer went to investigate, the Explorer took off.

The chase, eventually joined by a second officer, led down the highway to Sunset Road and Veterans Drive, back to 19, back to Sunset, and finally over the bridge into Port Richey.

But the Explorer was spotted a minute later on Grand Boulevard, Garman said. From there it went to River Gulf Road, then south on Washington Street to Massachusetts Avenue. About 1 p.m., the officers broke off the chase because it could have put others in danger, Garman said. The Explorer was last seen heading south on Grand.
No arms and 1 leg and he still out ran the cops.

Makes sense.. He didn't have a leg to stand on.
They should have given him a field sobriety test just to fuck with him. "Walk in a straight line, heel-to-toe, sir." Makes me want to join the force on the off-chance of pulling him over in the future.

Well, it did say he kicked a cop.

It had to have been a dropkick, right? He kicked, then he dropped. Actually that'd be a kickdrop but it doesn't sound as good.

He was probably so defiant to the police because he was jealous of the long arm of the law.

He works the turn signal with his left eyebrow, and the wipers with his right.

And changes the radio stations with his cock.
Come on, he's got to use it for something unconventional, one leg and a cock is all he's got left sticking out of his gut sack. He's not going to waste it.

Unless... Its gone too..
