Three women who claim to have been “air drying” after showering at a Florida rest area, went on to lead authorities on a high-speed chase near Interstate 75, resulting in their capture and arrest.
The witness who called the police said that “all three of them” were “standing in the nude putting on suntan lotion,” reports The Smoking Gun. When a trooper arrived at the scene, the three women attempted to explain their situation, stating that they had spent the night at the rest stop “due to an altercation” at a local residence.
The trooper also found a case of water and a bottle of soap on the ground next to the women, however, before she could complete her investigation, the women jumped into their car and sped off on the highway.
Here’s where it gets dangerous: their car was eventually found in the parking lot of a convenience store that the trio had entered, with clothes on. However, when another trooper attempted to arrest one of the women, he was almost struck by the driver of the white car. That’s when another woman jumped out of the car with a pink baseball bat and “approached the trooper”, prompting another officer to ram the vehicle, which led to a chase.
After deflating the suspects’ car’s tires, a PIT maneuver was deployed in order to get them to surrender. While the footage below shows us that part of the chase, it doesn’t show the moment when the women reportedly resisted arrest and had to be tasered before being taken into custody.
In the end, the trio (identified as
Highlanders Oasis Sharkira McLeod, Jeniyah McLeod and Cecilia Eunique Young) were charged with fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, aggravated assault, possession of marijuana and of course, indecent exposure.
