Safety Harbor Man Arrested For Wrong-Way DUI In Clearwater

Liquor_bottles_array.jpgYet another individual has been arrested for driving the wrong way while allegedly intoxicated on a Tampa-area street last week, this time on McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater.

Clearwater Police say a 78-year-old Safety Harbor man was witnessed by a police aid piloting his vehicle north in the southbound lanes of McMullen Booth Road around sundown on Friday. The police aid said he was able to halt traffic while awaiting the response of other officers.

Upon their arrival, the responding officers say the man was plainly intoxicated, displaying signs to them of impairment. Per the officers, the man admitted to consuming alcoholic drink prior to driving that evening.

The man, who is originally from Connecticut, was arrested at the scene and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. He was booked in to jail on a single count of driving under the influence. He was subsequently released on his own recognizance early the next morning.

This episode is but the latest of several wrong-way DUIs in the area, some of which have led to fatalities. Last month saw a 68-year-old grandfather slain in a wrong-way collision on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway. Only a few days separated two more such incidents that led to serious injuries to innocent bystanders.
