New Port Richey woman charged with DUI with four kids in the car

NEW PORT RICHEY — A 43-year-old woman with four children in her car was arrested Thursday night on charges of driving under the influence and child neglect, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

Stacey Marie Pizza, who was pulled over about 10:30 p.m. behind the Tampa Tribune building on U.S. 19 in New Port Richey, had a blood alcohol level of 0.113, a report states. Florida law presumes a driver is impaired at 0.08.

Inside her car were two three-year-olds, a six-year-old and a 16-year-old, the report said.

The Sheriff's Office said this is Pizza's third arrest on charges of driving under the influence. She was also charged with child neglect.

Pizza, of 9631 Lakeview Drive, remained Friday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $2,150 bail.
