Smith Middle School teacher aide arrested on DUI charge, pantless

Kristi Faye Steuber, 41, of Lutz had a blood alcohol level of 0.135 and 0.137 percent, reports said.

Kristi Faye Steuber, 41, of Lutz had a blood alcohol level of 0.135 and 0.137 percent, reports said.

WESLEY CHAPEL — A Paul R. Smith Middle School instructional aide was arrested early Saturday on a charge of driving under the influence on State Road 56.

Kristi Faye Steuber, 41, was clocked going 69 mph in a 55 mph zone with a broken headlight, according to a Pasco Sheriff's report. The deputy noted smelling alcohol on her breath.

She said she was coming from a bar in St. Petersburg where she had "several drinks," according to the report.

The deputy asked her to do field sobriety tests, but when she got out of the car, something was amiss.

Steuber was inexplicably nude from the waist down.

"I had to inform the defendant she was nude twice before she realized this," the report states, "and then make two requests for her to put pants on."

She was arrested and taken to the Land O'Lakes jail where, the report states, her blood alcohol level was measured at 0.135 percent and 0.137 percent. Florida law presumes a driver to be impaired at 0.08.

Steuber, who lives in Lutz, was instructed to set up a meeting with employee relations, said school district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe, but misdemeanor DUI charges don't typically draw discipline at the school level.

Steuber was released from jail on her own recognizance by 4 a.m. Saturday.
