MIAMI (CBS4) – He goes by the name “Doctor Mitch,” but U.S. Marshals say Jean Evra isn’t a licensed doctor, although he’s told women in South Florida he’s an OB-GYN.
The feds say he’s a wanted courtroom no-show for battery on a police officer and an alleged scam artist.
April R., who recently moved to South Florida from Maryland, said Evra is a Casanova.
April claimed he passed himself off as a well-to-do-doctor and even convinced her to buy a Mercedes Benz, offering to make the payments.
“He was like, ‘You’re going to upgrade your car anyway. Let’s get a Mercedes. I’m going to pay for it’,” said April.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Barry Golden said after she got the car, Evra left her “high and dry.”
Jean Evra is wanted for failing to appear in court to stand trial for the alleged battery on a Seminole Police Office earlier this year who pulled him over for drunk driving.
Golden told CBS4’s Brian Andrews that Evra has a history of mixing it up with police.
“In 2007, he was arrested in Miramar for DUI where he attempted to headbutt a female police officer who was taking him into custody,” said Golden.
Marshals say Evra has had his license suspended nearly a dozen times, and is still believed to be behind the wheel of the black Mercedes April purchased.
“I’m embarrassed I even know this man,” she said.
Evra could be anywhere from South Florida to South Georgia. April said she recently received a toll violation in the mail from Georgia saying the Mercedes registered in her name had blown throw a toll. She believes Evra was behind the wheel.
“I bought his story,” said April. “I came here single and ready to mingle, and got into this crazy situation like a nightmare I wish I could forget.”
The Marshals are asking anyone who has seen Evra, also known as “Doctor Mitch” to call their hotline at 877-WANTED2.
