Pasco man accused of DUI, threatening officer


Man accused of DUI, threatening officer

A man who was on probation is now behind bars, accused of making racist and threatening remarks against his probation officer while driving drunk, according to an arrest report.

Gary Lynn Posey is being held without bail, accused of violating his probation.

"I don't have to do a damn thing you say!" Posey told his probation officer, according to the report.

But the law says he does. Posey refused to obey an order from his probation officer, and refused an order to report to the probation office to discuss his "inappropriate, disrespectful communication," the report said.

He threatened "bodily harm" against his probation officer, the report said, and admitted that he was intoxicated and driving while issuing those threats toward his probation officer. He was arrested Thursday.

Posey, 52, of 13504 Litewood St., was sentenced on June 2 to two years of probation for a 2007 charge of aggravated assault, according to county records.


He'd rather sell drugs than work, police told

Daniel Ray Henderson politely asked police officers not to take him to jail.

But the unemployed 20-year-old also told officers, according to his arrest report, that he would rather sell marijuana than make $8 an hour.

Henderson, of 6232 Pennsylvania Ave., was arrested Thursday night on one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

He was pulled over, according to a New Port Richey police report, because his white Chevy Blazer ran a stop sign at Madison Street and Missouri Avenue.

An officer asked Henderson to step out of the car after noticing the odor of marijuana. Eight small bags were found, the report said, along with $490.
