14 Charged with DUI by Pinellas County Wolf Pack
The Pinellas County Sheriff has released results of an overnight countywide DUI wolf pack.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Fourteen drivers were arrested and charged with DUI as the result of a countywide DUI wolf pack that ran from Saturday night (March 14) through this morning (March 15). Additional charges – possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest without violence – were filed against some of those 14. The wolf pack also handed out almost 100 citations for such things as speeding and not wearing a seat belt. The wolf pack was a joint operation of the Sheriff’s Office with the Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, Largo and St. Petersburg police departments, and the Florida Highway Patrol. The operation was part of Sheriff’s Office ongoing commitment to reduce deaths, injuries, and property damage associated with traffic crashes related to impaired driving. The goal of a wolf pack is to educate drivers and create public awareness about the dangers of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and any chemical or controlled substances. The Sheriff’s Office will be conducting DUI wolf packs and DUI checkpoints continuously throughout the year. For information, see pcsoweb.com.
