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 A check for warrants showed his license had been revoked.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.

    Robert Gagnon was all set to be the new principal at St. Petersburg High, a plum position in the Pinellas County school district. His name was on a list of top administrative candidates to be approved at a special School Board meeting Tuesday.

    Robert Gagnon, who currently serves as an assistant principal at Northeast High in St. Petersburg, was tapped to lead St. Petersburg High next year pending School Board approval. The recommendation for his appointment was pulled from the School Board agenda by school district superintendent Mike Grego on Monday in light of "new information shared with me" regarding Gagnon's administrative experience in Lake County, according to an email sent to Pinellas County School Board members.

  5. Goodbye Tampa Bay Express, hello Tampa Bay Next; but toll lanes aren't going anywhere


    TAMPA — Tampa Bay Express is dead.

    But it's replacement — Tampa Bay Next — will likely include many of the same projects, including express toll lanes on the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge.

    The Florida Department of Transportation on Monday announced that it was renaming its Tampa Bay Express plan, also known as TBX. The plan will now be known as Tampa Bay Next, or TBN. DOT officials say there are still re-evaluating the most controversial aspect of the old TBX plan: spend $6 billion to add 90 miles of toll roads to bay area highways - Interstates 4,75 and 275 - that are currently free of tolls. But TBN will keep the plan to add express toll lanes to the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge. [Florida Department of Transportation]
