text size: AAA

A man, out on parole after spending 15 years in prison for murder, has been charged with attempted murder after police say he chased down an acquaintance and repeatedly rammed his vehicle into hers.

Aurora police say LaShone B. White, of the 800 block of Garfield Bvld., Chicago, attempted to run down a female acquaintance who had just parked her SUV at 11 p.m. Nov. 20 on the 400 block of Downer Place in Aurora.

The female victim, 36, heard a vehicle speeding toward her and jumped out of the way, said Dan Ferrelli, the Aurora Police Department's director of public information.

She then got in her vehicle and drove north on Chestnut Street.

Police say White followed her, repeatedly ramming her vehicle and eventually spinning it around. He then turned around and struck her vehicle head on.

The victim, uninjured and fearing for her life, drove away. Shortly after, police were notified of a banged up vehicle driving with no headlights northbound on Orchard Road.

Aurora police stopped the vehicle at Illinois Avenue and Westgate Drive.

White was arrested on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, criminal damage to property, driving under the influence, driving without headlights, and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

White also violated his parole.

According to the department of corrections website, White was sentenced in 1996 to 27 years in prison for murder. He served 15 years of that sentence and was paroled on Aug. 15, 2011.

Additionally, in 1993, White was convicted of aggravated battery of a child and the manufacture and delivery of cannabis.
