A Largo man made it less than a block from a local drinking establishment before he allegedly caused an accident involving a Pinellas County sheriff's deputy.

According to deputies, John Gregory Clark left a bar on Seminole Boulevard near the corner of Walsingham Road at around half past ten o'clock on September 30. Clark allegedly piloted his Oldsmobile south on Seminole when authorities say he turned into the path of a patrol car driven by Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Deputy Erin Nestor.

Deputy Nestor says that she was also proceeding southbound on Seminole, and with her lights and siren activated when Clark turned into her path, precipitating the collision. According to Nestor, the 68-year-old Clark admitted to drinking alcohol before climbing behind the wheel. The official report indicates that two blood-alcohol content tests were conducted, resulting in measurements of 0.114 percent and 0.106 percent, both of which were above Florida's legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Clark was transported to the Pinellas County Jail and booked under a charge of driving under the influence and DUI with property damage. He was released after posting $1,000 bond later the next day.
