Man Kidnaps Woman, Takes Law Enforcement on High Speed Chase

My Panhandle

JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. - A convicted felon is back behind bars after deputies say he kidnapped a woman before leading law enforcement on a high speed chase in Jackson County.

On Sunday, deputies responded to the Loves Truck Stop in Cottondale after a woman claimed she was kidnaped and forced into her vehicle at gunpoint by Albert Chester McKinnie. The victim told deputies she convinced McKinnie to let her use the restroom at the truck stop.

Deputies responded but when they confronted the suspect, McKinnie drove off, leading them on a high speed chase.

Deputies said the suspect continued at speeds well over 100 MPH on Kynseville Highway and threw several bags of unknown items out of the vehicle along the road.

The pursuit continued into Washington County where Florida Highway Patrol troopers attempted to pull over McKinnie.

After the suspect almost hit several vehicles, the Florida Highway Patrol trooper found a safe area to conduct the PIT maneuver, which caused the suspect vehicle to lose control and run off of the roadway.
