(WKMG) — LEESBURG, Fla. – A Leesburg woman was arrested Thursday after she tailgated a deputy, then told him that “Jesus commanded” her to do so, officials with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said.

A Lake County deputy was driving his patrol car when he noticed a beige Volkswagen within inches of his bumper, according to the arrest report.

The deputy made a right turn and got into the far left lane of U.S. Highway 441, when he again noticed the same car tailgating him.
