21-year-old Bradenton fugitive arrested

WAKULLA CO., Florida -- A 21-year-old Bradenton man wanted for murder was arrested by Wakulla County Sheriff's Office deputies after a car chase Sunday.

Kwame Jaquavius Henri was arrested after deputies received information about a car speeding northbound in the southbound lane on Woodville Highway, according to the sheriff's office.

The deputies chased Henri a short distance into Leon County, nearly striking another vehicle head-on before stopping.

Deputies say they smelled marijuana in Henri's car, and Henri appeared to be unsteady on his feet while attempting to get out of the vehicle. Henri reportedly gave the deputy multiple false names before granting permission to search his vehicle.

Deputies say they discovered marijuana and an Oxycodone pill inside the car.

Henri was taken to the Wakulla County Jail without incident, where it was discovered that he was wanted for an outstanding murder warrant in Manatee County.

Henri faces charges in Wakulla County of DUI, fleeing and attempting to elude, knowingly operating a motor vehicle while license is suspended or revoked, possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and smuggling contraband into a detention facility.

In Manatee, Henri is wanted for murder, possession of a controlled substance, attempting to tamper with a witness and possession of cannabis.
