With all his tires deflated, Bonner got onto westbound I-4, hitting a guardrail, before his driver’s side tires completely disintegrated and the wheel began throwing sparks, deputies said.
Bonner eventually pulled onto the median, got out of the car and ran. The 15-year-old girl also got out of the car and ran into some bushes before deputies caught up to her and put her in a patrol car.
Deputies sent out a K-9 unit to find Bonner nearby. Bonner sustained a dog bite during his arrest, deputies said.
Bonner is charged with grand theft auto, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, two counts child abuse, fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, interference with child custody, driving while license suspended or revoked and resisting an officer without violence, according to jail records.
The 15-year-old was returned to her mother. The 4-year-old, who was found in the front seat without a seat belt or a child restraint seat, was placed in the care of the state Department of Children and Families.
There were no injuries to the children, who were known to Bonner, or any of the deputies involved.
