Pasco/Hernando pediatrician arrested on DUI charge

NEW PORT RICHEY – A pediatrician with clinics in west Pasco and Hernando counties was charged with driving under the influence early Sunday morning.

Dr. Gogi Ramappa, 70, was arrested just north of Main Street about 3:15 a.m. by a New Port Richey officer who saw his Mercedes-Benz drift across U.S. 19, a police report states.

Ramappa, the officer wrote, slurred his speech, failed sobriety tests and told police he had three glasses of wine in the last hour. Police measured his blood alcohol content at 0.11, over the level at which a driver is presumed impaired.

Ramappa is listed as a physician at clinics in Hudson and Spring Hill.
