The Tallahassee Democrat reports that Rep. Dan Eagle (R-Cape Coral) was recently arrested for DUI in Tallahassee, after authorities say he ran a red light around 2 a.m., shortly after running over several curbs while attempting a U-turn. He would later say his vehicle smelled like alcohol because he had just left a bar, though he denied drinking.
That incident follows another high-profile DUI case linked to Lee County, involving an Estero High School teacher who was reportedly pulled over on her way to school after she was observed swerving through several lanes of traffic at 20 miles-per-hour. Her blood alcohol at 7 a.m., according to authorities, measured three times the legal limit.
Drunk driving accident attorneys in Cape Coral know that if the facts are true as alleged by police, these two are lucky they didn’t seriously hurt or kill someone.
