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.''
