The Women Try To Escape Highway Patrol After Getting Caught Washing At A Rest Stop
Things went from zero to sixty when three naked women were caught by Highway Patrol in Florida.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, in Pasco County, the three women were spotted at the northbound Interstate 75 rest stop area.
The arrest reports state that a rest stop custodian called the Highway Patrol once they spotted the women, saying he saw them “in the nude, putting on suntan lotion.” Once the trooper arrived, she saw the naked women in the rest stop parking lot and they immediately started putting on their clothes. Eighteen-year-old Oasis Shakira McLeod told the trooper that they were “air drying” after washing up, and the trooper peeped that they had a case of water and a bottle of soap. The other two women were identified as Jeniyah McLeod and Cecilia Eunique Young, both 19.
Oasis said they had left Cecila’s father’s house after an altercation and spent the night in the rest stop because they didn’t have anywhere else to go. The women provided their names and dates of birth, but they went against the trooper’s commands to stay put. “We need you to leave,” Jeniyah McLeod said. “We need you to walk away. Leave, leave, leave.”
She then told the trooper that they were going to walk away, and the trooper told them to stop. “No we’re not,” one of them reportedly said, then all three of them ran around the trooper and jumped into a white 2009 Nissan Sentra with a New York state license plate. Oasis was at the driver’s seat as the car sped off, causing a pedestrian to jump out of the road as they sped away.
While on the northbound Interstate 75, the trooper started speeding after them but her superiors called her off because the situation didn’t meet Highway Patrol’s pursuit policy.
A driver on I-75 called 911 and followed the Nissan to S.R. 52 in San Antonio Florida. That’s when another trooper found the Nissan, reported seeing it drive the wrong way and began heading east on S.R. 52.
A trooper managed to shoot a GPS tracker onto the driving Nissan, which officials said allowed them to back off the pursuit. Highway Patrol dispatchers in Tampa began tracking the car and radioing its position to troopers.
Things got even MORE intense when the Nissan pulled into a gas station and Cecilia Young reportedly jumped out of the back seat and ran inside. Two troopers jumped out their cruiser and demanded the Nissan stop, but of course, it drove off. One trooper drove after it while the other trooper pursued Young.
They got in an intense tussle, with Young kicking, scratching and hitting, according to the trooper. As soon as he got her on the ground, he said he peeped the Nissan coming after him.
Thus, he jumped out the way, and that’s when he said Jeniya hopped out the car and threatened him with a pink and purple metal bat. Seeing a fellow trooper in danger, the other trooper in the cruiser decided to ram the Nissan in the back.
The women then all got in and drove off again. They drove east on S.R. 52, but ran over a tire-deflation device placed on the road by Dade City police officers, which put out their right-side tires.
The epic chase finally came to an end when the Nissan entered an active school zone outside Pasco High School while students were crossing S.R. 52, according to troopers. One of the pursuing troopers was authorized to execute the “PIT maneuver” — Pursuit Intervention Technique — which caused him to use the front end of his cruiser to knock the Nissan off the road at S.R. 52 and Old San Ann Road.
The women weren’t trying to give up though.
They refused to leave the Nissan and instead, they locked arms, according to a trooper. A trooper then used a Taser to stun one of them, and the driver, Oasis McLeod, surrendered. The women all invoked their rights to not talk to the troopers. Oasis McLeod agreed to perform field sobriety exercises, according to troopers, and she seemed to be impaired. Troopers eventually found marijuana in the vehicle and Jeniyah McLeod said it was hers, and she got it from “a white guy named Bubba.”
The three ladies were arrested at 11 a.m. and taken to AdventHealth Dade City hospital to be checked out. They were then booked into the Pasco County jail.
It should be noted that Pasco, has been named the nudist capital of the world, however arrests reports indicate the women were not linked to any nudist or clothing-optional communities.
