Largo man with DUI record faces another charge in crash that injured bicyclist


Crash with injuries leads to DUI charge

A Largo man was arrested Thursday on a charge of driving under the influence after an investigation found he had antianxiety and narcotic painkillers in his system, authorities said. Michael Galloway, 41, of 14130 Rosemary Lane was charged with felony DUI, DUI with serious bodily injury and DUI with property damage. He is being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $14,500 bail. The arrest stems from an accident at Fifth Avenue just east of E Gulf Boulevard on Feb. 2. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, a 53-year-old bicyclist was riding westbound on the shoulder of the curb lane when he was struck from the rear by a vehicle driven by Galloway. The bicyclist, Barry Cercone of Seminole, was thrown from the bike. He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg with non-life-threatening injuries. Galloway and his passenger, 23-year-old James Horton, were uninjured. The Sheriff's Office said recently returned test results show Galloway was impaired by oxycodone, Xanax and Nordazepam at the time of the crash. He was arrested just hours after he posted bail and was released from the county jail on unrelated charges of burglary and possession of burglary tools. Galloway was sentenced to a year of probation after he pleaded no contest to DUI in 2005. He was also charged with DUI in December .

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.
