FL Man Arrested For DUI With BAC More Than 4x Legal Limit, Police Say

Authorities say they had to use a helicopter to locate a Central Florida man, who they later arrested for DUI when his blood alcohol level tested at nearly four times the legal limit.

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about a driver driving recklessly in an apartment complex parking lot in Spring Hill, about an hour north of Tampa.

The driver, later identified as 24-year-old Collin James Daniel, was reportedly crashing into mailboxes and other cars.

The sheriff’s office said Daniel then got out of his car and started an argument with a man who was walking his dog. Daniel allegedly pushed the man, who then loosened his grip on his German Shepherd’s leash, causing Daniel to flee.

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office used their helicopter to locate him, finding Daniel lying on his back between two air conditioning units.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers tested Daniels’ blood alcohol level, which came back at .316 percent. The legal limit in Florida is .08.

Deputies arrested Daniel and charged him with driving under the influence as well as battery.
