CLERMONT A man arrested for carjacking a woman in broad daylight and leaving her and her child on the side of the road was extradited to Lake County Tuesday.

Leonard Jerome White, 30, of Orlando, is being held on charges of armed carjacking and two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. He was being held Wednesday without bond.

White was arrested shortly after the carjacking when police chased him into Orange County, where he was captured after breaking into a home there.

In addition to the carjacking charges here, he faces charges in Orange County for armed burglary, criminal mischief, fleeing and eluding and resisting arrest.

According to a probable cause affidavit and the Florida Highway Patrol, White was on the Turnpike near mile marker 285 about 2:15 p.m. June 11. He pointed a gun at the windshield of motorist Teena Tinch and forced her and her son out of the car.

Tinch and her child ran off, but she still had the key fob, which prevented White from driving off, so he chased her down and tried to force her and her son back into the car. She refused, gave him the keys and he drove off.

Troopers spotted the vehicle traveling south on the Turnpike at a high rate of speed and attempted to disable it with spiked Stop Sticks. White was able to evade the spikes and the pursuit continued south on the Turnpike, onto Interstate 4 and then onto Conroy Road before he pulled into the Middlebrook Farms Condominiums, where he fled on foot.

The suspect then forced his way into an occupied residence through a window.

White eventually surrendered and was taken into custody.

No injuries were reported during the incident.
