APRIL 12--From the moment a Florida Highway Patrol officer contacted three naked women “air drying” themselves Wednesday morning near an Interstate 75 rest stop, suspect Jeniyah McLeod distinguished herself as a petulant jackass.
McLeod and her companions--her sister Oasis, 18, and Cecilia Young, 19--then jumped into a Nissan Sentra and sped away, nearly striking a pedestrian. With Oasis driving, the women led cops on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash and their arrest on numerous criminal charges.
After getting tased as she struggled with officers trying to pull her from the Nissan, McLeod was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser outfitted with video cameras.
When a patrolman sat down behind the wheel, McLeod asked, “So what’s the plan? What’s going on?” When she did not get a reply, McLeod said, “I’m talking to you. You don’t wanna talk to me? Who ya textin' on Messenger?”
After McLeod continuously banged on the window to get someone’s attention, a cop opened the rear door. McLeod asked when she would be able to rejoin her friends. Told that was not possible since she was under arrest, McLeod replied, “I’m under arrest? Why? I wasn’t even driving.”
She later asked, “Why am I under arrested? Oh, you guys are gonna kill me? Well, I don’t give permission for nobody to take my life.” She noted that cops would pay for this, since “karma’s a bitch.”
