Authorities in Polk County have located and arrested a convicted felon they've been looking for since February.
David Lee Boone, 39, is being held without bond at the Polk County Jail. He is facing a variety of charges including aggravated fleeing to elude and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
The latest charges stem from an incident that occurred on February 27th along US Highway 27 near Davenport. Investigators say Boone attempted to run over a deputy while driving a stolen pick-up truck.
According to a Polk County Sheriff's Office report a deputy spotted Boone Friday night on US 27 near Instate 4. The deputy initiated a traffic stop but the suspect refused to pull over.
The vehicle eventually became disabled as Boone attempted to avoid arrest. When his black Mazda finally gave out Boone attempted to flee on foot. A deputy was forced to deploy a taser on the suspect to get him to comply.
Following his apprehension Boone was taken to Heart of Florida Hospital for observation before being taken to jail.
In a released issued on March 1st Polk County Sheriff called Boone a very dangerous suspect who will resort to almost anything to avoid arrest.
He has served three stints in the state prison system for convictions out of Polk and Osceola counties.
