Deputies Charge Motorcyclist with DUI after Seminole Crash
The motorcyclist and his passenger were both injured in the June crash.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Sheriff’s deputies have accused a St. Petersburg man of driving while intoxicated when he was involved in a single-vehicle crash in June.
Charged Sunday (Aug. 9) with one count of DUI with serious bodily injury was Staz Guntek, 48, of St. Petersburg. Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies say they charged him after a blood test showed that he had a blood alcohol content of 0.141 and 0.142. Florida law says a person is presumed to be driving drunk when his/her alcohol content is 0.08 or above.
On June 14, Guntek and his passenger/wife, Denise, 51, were traveling southbound on Seminole Boulevard approaching the Bay Pines Triangle when he attempted to overtake a vehicle on the right and drove off the roadway and onto the grassy shoulder. Deputies say Guntek lost control of the motorcycle and it began to slide on its side. Both he and his passenger were ejected. Both were taken to Bayfront Medical Center by ambulance for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Deputies say they arrested Guntek at his workplace in Largo on Sunday (Aug. 9) afternoon. He was taken to the Pinellas County Jail.
