WDAE-AM sports radio talk-show host Steve Duemig found not guilty in DUI case

A six-person jury found WDAE-AM 620 sports talk-show host Steve Duemig not guilty of driving under the influence.

Duemig, known as the "Big Dawg,'' was pulled over by a Pinellas County Sheriff's deputy near his home in the Feather Sound area of St. Petersburg on June 15, 2008, and arrested on suspicion of DUI. The jury reached its verdict late Thursday.

"It just puts it into perspective that you cannot assume guilt until all the facts have been presented and the legal system is allowed to take its course,'' Duemig, 53, said.

"I put my faith in the legal system and my faith in the jury. They were able to sift through the fact and fiction of the case and it was the right verdict: not guilty.''

  2. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer

    Minors

    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
