Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies accuse a seventy-year-old Tampa man of causing a three-car accident involving a deputy’s vehicle while piloting his own in a state of intoxication.
Alfredo Rodriguez-Jimenez was driving down N 15th Street Sunday night when deputies say he struck a car behind a HCSO deputy’s vehicle at a quarter past nine, pushing that car into it. The collision occurred at East Fowler Avenue, just east of University Mall. The Department says their deputy was uninjured, but that two individuals in the middle vehicle were taken to Florida Hospital as a precaution due to minor injuries.
Rodriguez-Jimenez was arrested at the scene of the accident just over an hour later on suspicion of driving while intoxicated with property damage. The arrest report indicates that his blood-alcohol content was between 0.180% and 0.182% at the time it was measured, which is over twice the level the state of Florida presumes impairment to set in. He was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail at a quarter past one the next morning, then released almost 24 hours later on a $500 surety bond.
