WATCH Florida man arrested after leaping from 2nd-story balcony

A Florida man wanted for attempted murder thought he could evade authorities by leaping from his second-story balcony. He was wrong.

When Pasco County sheriff's officers knocked on his door, Rashad Walker allegedly exited through his rear sliding-glass door and jumped to the floor below, where he was greeted by deputies waiting to arrest him.
