It’s become a regular occurrence late nights in Tampa Bay and it happened again late Friday night / early Saturday morning. Florida Highway Patrol says 31 year old David Ramirez from Tampa was heading home from the bar and wound up driving the wrong way on 275 in St. Petersburg. Channel 8 reports he entered at 5th Avenue North in St. Pete at around 3AM. He traveled northbound in the southbound lane. The good news is he only made it about two miles. Troopers were able to get him pulled over by the time he got to 38th Avenue North.
Once pulled over, officers had Ramirez do a breath test. They say he blew a .161. That’s about twice the legal limit. He was arrested for DUI. The good news is there doesn’t seem to be any word of accidents or injuries caused by the incident. [Source: Channel 8]
