Man sleeping at wheel arrested on DUI charge

A Largo man was charged with DUI and possession of a controlled substance after police said they found him asleep in an idling car in front of a Publix. Hollis Christopher Inman, 31, was slumped over behind the wheel when police approached to check on him about 11 p.m. Wednesday at 5000 East Bay Drive, according to an arrest report. Police said he appeared confused and sluggish and showed signs of impairment during field sobriety tests, then he admitted to having taken oxycodone and Xanax before driving. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail on Thursday in lieu of $3,500 bail.


Stopped for lights, charged with DUI

A Clearwater man was charged with driving under the influence, police said, after a breath test showed his blood-alcohol content to be five times more than the threshold at which Florida law presumes that someone is unable to safely drive a motor vehicle. Eric John Klinges, 34, of 812 Normandy Road, was stopped Wednesday night near the intersection of Park Place Boulevard and E Grand Reserve Circle for driving with no headlights, according to an arrest report. Police said he failed field sobriety tests, and a breath test showed his blood-alcohol content to be 0.45. Court records show Klinges has two prior DUI convictions from 1998 and 2004. He was released from jail Thursday on $5,000 bail.
