Zephyrhills man arrested on fifth DUI charge

ZEPHYRHILLS — A man was arrested over the weekend on his fifth drunken driving charge after tests showed his blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the level at which impairment is presumed.

William David Naugle, 43, of 35916 Valleybrook Ave, also faces a charge of driving with a suspended or revoked license, jail records show.

A deputy went to Naugle's house after a disturbance there, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. A check for warrants showed his license had been revoked. The deputy cleared the call and left.

A couple of hours later, the deputy saw Naugle driving a 2001 white Ford F-150 past his patrol car at Ryals Road and Begonia Avenue, the report said. The deputy pulled the truck over and noticed Naugle had slurred speech and bloodshot eyes, the report said. He performed poorly on sobriety tests and breath tests showed blood-alcohol levels of 0.296 and 0.298. The state presumes impairment at 0.08.

Naugle was held in lieu of $5,000 bail at the Land O'Lakes jail. A computer check showed DUI convictions in 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2004.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It's a funky name: the Bad Boys Mowers Gasparilla Bowl. But the new sponsors for the former St. Petersburg Bowl might need more than an eye-catching name to create a thriving, profitable contest.

    NC State head coach Dave Doeren clutches the championship trophy after winning the Bitcoin Bowl at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg in 2014. Bowl organizers are changing the name of the game to the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.
