Arrest at Marco Island Bingo Table: Connecticut Man Charged with Vehicular Manslaughter

On January 5th, 2021, Collier County Deputies from the Fugitive Warrants Bureau arrested Michael Talbot, 24, from Stamford, Connecticut, while he was playing bingo at San Marco Catholic Church on Marco Island, Florida.

Talbot was arrested on an active warrant from the Stamford Police Department and is accused of two counts of vehicular manslaughter. He is currently being held in the Collier County jail awaiting extradition to Connecticut, where he will be held on a $1 million bond.

The arrest of Talbot came as a shock to the other bingo players, who were all unaware of the fugitive’s presence. According to Collier County Sheriff’s office, the warrant had been issued after Talbot allegedly caused a fatal accident in Connecticut. The accident happened when Talbot was driving under the influence and crashed into another vehicle, killing the two occupants.

Talbot is expected to face serious criminal charges for his actions and could be sentenced to substantial time in prison. The accident is a tragedy for all involved and serves as a reminder of the potential consequences of drinking and driving.

Driving under the influence is a serious crime and can have devastating consequences, such as the loss of a life. The arrest of Talbot is a reminder to everyone to always drive responsibly and to never drink and drive. Understanding the dangers of driving under the influence, and the potential consequences of one’s actions can help to prevent tragedies like this from occurring in the future.
