Man Offers Resident $100 for Hiding Spot

A man on the run from Pasco County deputies offered a Spring Hill woman $100 to hide him from authorities.

She didn't take the money.

The Sheriff's Office reports that 23-year-old Joshua Christian barged into the woman's home Thursday afternoon, offered her the money and then went into a closet.

But when deputies tracked Christian from his nearby home to the woman's house, she turned him in.

Authorities say Christian was wanted for several crimes, including beating two people with a baseball bat, taking a BlackBerry cell phone and stealing an all-terrain vehicle.

Christian was being held on $60,250 bail.
