Three arrests were made Wednesday after an initial report of three naked females at a rest area led Florida Highway Patrol troopers on a pursuit that ended in Dade City.

According to a media release, at approximately 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, FHP units in Pasco County were dispatched to a suspicious persons call at the northbound I-75 rest area, south of State Road 54.

Trooper Danielle Poulin arrived on scene and observed three black females naked, who stated that they had showered and were “air drying.” As Trooper Poulin attempted to gather information, the three subjects ran and got into a white 2009 Nissan Sentra and fled through the northbound rest area entrance (heading southbound) before turning back northbound. They then traveled north on I-75 toward State Road 52. Trooper Poulin initiated a pursuit; however, was cancelled due to the pursuit not fitting FHP criteria.

A citizen then called into *347 to report the reckless vehicle and remained on the phone with FHP dispatch providing location updates. As the vehicle turned east onto State Road 52, Trooper Christopher Brando was in the area and located the vehicle which was driving in the wrong direction briefly, then turned back eastbound on State Road 52. Trooper Brando initiated a pursuit for the observed reckless driving. Trooper Brando was able to deploy StarChase projectiles successfully which allowed troopers to back off and dispatch to coordinate FHP response/perimeter activities.

The suspect vehicle was tracked as it pulled into the convenience store parking lot located at State Road 52 and Curley Road where it was promptly located empty. As the three females exited the store and got into the car, Trooper Ronald Paulin attempted to take one of the females into custody who had not made it back into the vehicle. While Trooper Paulin was attempting to arrest that subject, the driver purposely drove directly at Trooper Paulin who had to disengage and jump back to avoid being struck by the car. The other passenger exited the vehicle with a metal bat in an effort to assault Trooper Paulin. Sgt. Dennis Rich, seeing that Trooper Paulin was in imminent danger, rammed the suspect vehicle with his marked patrol vehicle, and the vehicle fled again, eastbound on State Road 52.

The subjects were able to flee again in the vehicle, with Sgt. Rich and Trooper Paulin again in pursuit. Dade City PD responded to the area and deployed stop sticks, successfully deflating the right side tires. Due to the aggravated assault charges and the totality of the circumstances, Trooper Brando was authorized to PIT the vehicle. Trooper Brando completed the action successfully, bringing the pursuit to a conclusion at State Road 52 and 21st Street in Dade City.

Once stopped, Trooper Paulin utilized his ASP to break out the vehicle windows as all three occupants refused to comply and continued to actively resist arrest and interlocked their arms together in the vehicle. As a result, all three were tasered, taken into custody, and transported to the Pasco County Jail. Several of the troopers sustained minor injuries during the events listed.

Arrested were the driver, Oasis Shakira Mcleod, 18; Jeniyah Mcleod, 19; and Cecilia Eunique Young, 19. Charges in the case include fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, aggravated assault and lewd behavior.
