Firefighter Arrested for DUI

Earlier this week a firefighter in Hillsborough County was arrested by Tampa police for driving under the influence with a BAC of nearly twice the legal limit. Tampa Police reports state that late Tuesday evening police stopped a vehicle that was driving with no headlights on. The vehicle was driven by a nearly 20-year firefighter veteran, with a prior DUI conviction from several years ago. Tampa police arrested the firefighter after noticing significant impairment and took him to jail.

A breath test revealed that his blood alcohol content (BAC) was at more than .17 percent. Legal intoxication is presumed at .08 percent according to Florida law. A representative for the firestation stated that the man was not on-duty at the time of his arrest. Criminal charges for driving under the influence can be especially serious if you have prior DUI convictions on your record. If you have been arrested or charged for DUI in Tampa, seek legal representation from a legal firm that you can count on to fight your charges in any way to improve your chances of earning reduced or dismissed charges.
