Driver with three DUIs, 15 license revocations arrested again in Hernando

SPRING HILL — When a deputy saw a driver weaving between lanes and going off the road in a southbound lane on the Suncoast Parkway Thursday afternoon, he pulled him over and soon discovered the man has a lengthy history of traffic offenses.

Carlos Santana, who has three DUI convictions dating back to 2003 and whose driver's license has been revoked 15 times, now faces several more charges.

Santana, 30, of Lutz, told deputies that he had consumed a beer and had taken four pills, including oxycodone and methacarbamol, according to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report.

Santana, who had a set of brass knuckles in his pants pocket, refused to take a breath test, the report states. He was arrested on his fourth DUI charge along with three other related charges.
