Holiday Man Charged With DUI After Allegedly Striking House With Drug-Laden Vehicle


A Holiday man is facing several charges after Pasco County authorities say ran his drug-laden vehicle into a residence and subsequently fled the scene.

The 28-year-old man was allegedly piloting his 2016 Mazda 6 eastward on Bartelt Road in the pre-dawn hours of April 1st when deputies say he left the roadway near the intersection of Knollwood Drive.

Investigators say his vehicle's first victim was a utility pole, which did little to slow his progress. However, the next stop in his car's journey would be more than sufficient for that purpose, as it was a house.

Though the structure was occupied, the individual within was unharmed. The same could not be said of the structure itself, as deputies characterized its damage as heavy.

Meanwhile, the driver of the car did not linger to survey the damage, per deputies. He fled on foot, but his flight came to an abbreviated end after officers caught up with him.

Officers say he left behind a vehicle that was a treasure trove of illicit drugs and cash. He was arrested at the scene of his capture and booked into the Pasco County Jail on charges of DUI, possession of cannabis with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance, cannabis possession, resisting an officer without violence, reckless driving with damage to property, and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage. He was released later that day after posting a bond of $23,500.
