LAND O'LAKES — A 21-year-old man involved in a fatal crash last month was arrested this weekend on unrelated charges of DUI and using a firearm under the influence of a controlled substance.
Logan Tanner Feagle of Land O'Lakes was pulled over about 3 a.m. Sunday near State Road 54, where authorities say he was driving about 20 mph over the speed limit.
The deputy noticed Feagle's eyes were bloodshot and dilated and that he was slurring his words, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. Feagle also had a loaded rifle lying between the driver's seat and the center console, authorities said.
After Feagle failed a field sobriety test, the deputy arrested him and took him to Land O'Lakes jail. He was later released on his own recognizance.
The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the June 14 crash in which Feagle's truck veered onto the shoulder of Interstate 75 near Brandon, crushing a warning sign, striking another truck and hitting Robert P. Armstrong Jr., a 19-year-old road crew worker. Armstrong died.
Troopers are awaiting toxicology results to determine whether alcohol played a role in that crash.
