Three face DUI, other charges in Pasco incidents


Wobbly on his feet, he insisted he was sober

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper pulled over a car just after 10 p.m. Wednesday that had been weaving on northbound Interstate 275.

Driver Michael Majesky, 36, couldn't stand without falling, an FHP report said. Leaning against his car, he threw up.

A trooper asked if he had been drinking and driving. "I don't drink or do drugs," Majesky replied, according to FHP.

Majesky — a felon with a record of grand theft, aggravated assault with a weapon, escape, and battery on a law enforcement officer among other convictions — was charged with DUI. He refused a Breathalyzer test.

He was released from the Pasco County jail Thursday morning.

Majesky, who lives at 36424 Ohara St. in Zephyrhills, has been on community supervision since his latest prison stint and is supposed to be supervised until November 2012, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.


Sorry about crash, but would like a drink

After passing out and causing a four-car crash early Wednesday morning, Wendy L. Hollahan told a trooper she "felt like drinking a big margarita," according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Authorities say Hollahan, 39, was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when the collision happened about 2:46 a.m. on State Road 54 near U.S. 41.

Sgt. Larry Kraus said three people had minor injuries from the accident.

Hollahan mumbled, couldn't stand without support and told a trooper she might have blacked out before the crash, a report states. She said "she was sorry and that she didn't mean to hurt anyone."

Authorities say Hollahan, who lives at 3928 Chaucer Way in Land O'Lakes, fell asleep for 30 minutes in the back of the patrol car while being transported to jail. She is charged with DUI and three counts of DUI causing personal injury. She is being held at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $1,650 bail.


Punch follows push; jab and charges follow

A self-employed mechanic rammed a parked car and plowed through two mailboxes on Parkwood Street about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Jefferey T. Frazier, 31, of Tarpon Springs was so impaired that he couldn't walk without falling over, a report states.

He was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point for his injuries.

After being medically cleared, he pushed a registered nurse into a supply cart and punched a trooper in the face, the FHP report says.

The trooper "executed a forward jab" to Frazier's face and restrained him.

The trooper had a bruised and swollen face and the nurse was sore after her tumble, FHP said.

Frazier had a black eye in his mug shot.

Frazier is charged with DUI, battery on a law enforcement officer and battery on a health services worker.

He remains at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $5,100 bail.
