Florida Politician Takes Plea Deal for Taco Bell DUI

A republican lawmaker in Florida was recently arrested for drunk driving and sentenced to six months of probation and 100 hours of community service as part of a plea deal. He plead no contested to a charge of reckless driving. This is a reduced charge, compared to his original charge of a DUI.

The individual was arrested for driving under the influence back in April when he stopped at a Taco Bell drive-thru. The police say that the driver rolled over curbs and was speeding when he was pulled over. He also ran a red light while intoxicated. He was discovered at around 2:00 a.m. where officers said that his breath and vehicle smelled of alcohol.

The politician denied that he had been drinking when pulled over and refused to take a field sobriety test. The lawmaker admitted to a lesser charge of reckless driving in the court case that ensued. He will also need to submit to random alcohol testing as a part of his penalty. The representative also lost his license for a year because he declined to take a Breathalyzer test. He has been issued a provisional license which will allow him to drive to work.

This politician has already apologized publically for his actions and says that he is relieved that the incident is behind him. If you have been arrested for a DUI, it can damage your reputation significantly. Along with the embarrassment of a DUI arrest, this offense can result in serious penalties.
