A woman wanted in an alleged attack on her man friend was apprehended near the Walmart at Buffalo Ridge Plaza in The Villages.

Leatha Cameshia Wright, 35, of Leesburg, was driving a beige Chevy SUV at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday on County Road 466 at U.S. 301 when a Sumter County sheriff’s deputy noticed the vehicle did not have an operable tag light. A traffic stop was initiated at Buffalo Ridge Plaza. When the deputy approached the SUV, the “strong odor of burnt marijuana” was detected coming from the vehicle. A container holding marijuana was found in the vehicle.

Wright was also wanted in connection with a June 5 incident in which she allegedly followed a man to the Pilot gas station on State Road 44 in Wildwood. Wright approached the man’s vehicle and began yelling at him, according to an arrest report. She reached into the vehicle through the driver’s side window and pushed the man’s cheek with her palm. She fled the scene before the arrival of law enforcement.

She was arrested on multiple charges and booked without bond at the Sumter County Detention Center.
