Sheriffs are responsible for enforcing the law, maintaining order, and keeping everyone safe. Even when a sheriff deputy is off duty, they, along with other law enforcement agencies, should be aware of the dangers of breaking the law. That goes without saying regarding the risks associated with driving under the influence. When a driver drinks and drives, they put the safety of everyone on the road in danger. Victims of an accident caused by a drunk driver should rely on an experienced personal injury attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through the complicated litigation process inherent in personal injury cases.

A Hillsborough County, Florida Sheriff’s deputy was arrested on a DUI charge after he crashed his truck Tuesday night into a pedestrian bridge near Disney Springs, Florida. Timothy Michael Craig, 46 years-old, first hit a stop sign on Buena Vista Drive near Broadway before he careened into the pedestrian bridge. Deputy Craig was taken to the hospital where he was in and out of consciousness and throwing up. There were no other reported injuries. While at the hospital, he refused to take a breath test or do any field sobriety exercises. He had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.
When the troopers searched his truck, they found two open bottles of Fireball whiskey. After being released from the hospital and seeing the police cruisers, he tried to walk away from the troopers but they told him he was not free to go. He was then placed his under arrest and read his Miranda rights.
