Florida Attorney Terra Neshonda Carroll convicted after leading police on high-speed chase - Extreme DUI
MILTON — A South Florida attorney faces up to 15 years in state prison after being convicted by a Santa Rosa County jury Jan. 9 for fleeing or attempting to elude police officers during a high-speed chase.
Terra Neshonda Carroll, who was 36 when charged, was reported to the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office as a reckless driver Sept. 10, 2016, according to a press release from State Attorney Bill Eddins.
Carroll was driving in the bike lane along U.S. Highway 98 in Navarre when, after being located by sheriff’s deputies, led them on a high-speed chase. She weaved through traffic, ran through red traffic signals and almost struck a pedestrian, the press release said.
The chase ended after Carroll crossed the median in Gulf Breeze, traveled west in the eastbound lanes ans struck a Gulf Breeze police cruiser head on, according to the release.
Carroll refused to acknowledge law officers who surrounded her vehicle, so they broke the windows to gain access. Carroll was arrested without further incident.
She was charged with fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer in an agency vehicle with lights and sirens activated and at high speed, and resisting an officer without violence.
Circuit Judge John Simon, who presided over the trial, set sentencing for 1 p. m. Feb. 20.
