The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says David Lestishock of 10244 Sorenstam Drive confessed to improperly touching the girl on March 13. Lestishock's relationship to the child was not released because of the nature of the allegations.

Lestishock was arrested Wednesday and is charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 16. He was released from the Pasco County jail Wednesday evening on $10,000 bail.


Pizzeria owner hurt in fight over credit card

At 10:30 Wednesday night, the owner of a Hungry Howie's Pizza restaurant suspected that a customer had given him a stolen credit card. So he refused to give it back.

The owner of the restaurant at 4511 Grand Blvd. had a 2-inch cut above his eye from the attack, the report said.
