Florida Man Arrested and Charged with DUI in Jail Parking Lot

On Sunday, January 12, a 29-year-old Florida man was arrested on a DUI charge in the parking lot of Pasco County Jail, according to law enforcement. Staff from the jail had approached the suspect's car to find him asleep behind the wheel, keys in the ignition, radio playing. The staff had to rap against the window for several minutes to get the suspect to come to. Authorities said there was a clear smell of alcohol emanating from the vehicle. Deputies reported the discovery of an open beer container in the cup holder. The suspect is reported to have said himself that he had a couple drinks. He had driven a friend to the jail. After he refused to take a breath test, he was arrested and only had a few feet to go to be booked into jail.

Due to implied consent, if a driver refuses a breath or blood test when they have been arrested for a DUI, then they will automatically have their driver's license suspended, whether or not they are ever convicted of a DUI. If on top of this suspension, there is a DUI conviction, then this could entail additional months of license suspension, as well as time in jail, hefty fines, and a criminal record. This record is something that can cause any job, loan, or housing application to be denied in a second, a record that can alter the rest of your life.

When you face such severe penalties, you need to act quickly to protect your freedoms and your future. You can find the tireless defense that you deserve at Thomas & Paulk, P.A. Find out how a skilled Tampa DUI attorney may be able to defend you when you contact our firm today!
