Texting and driving is a really bad idea. But some people need to learn that lesson firsthand in order to fully comprehend it.

Michael James Woody Jr. of Fort Myers, Florida, is one of those people.

The 23-year-old was tailed by a Fort Myers PD cruiser earlier this month after he was spotted driving erratically.

Officer Ivan Moorer followed Woody's 2004 Pontiac Grand Am a short distance down Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard before Woody decided to make a turn onto Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

A fateful decision indeed, and the subsequent consequence was caught on Moorer's dash cam.

Luckily for Woody, he managed to walk away uninjured. Luckily for the officer, too.
