Man named Beverage charged with DUI
ST. PETERSBURG -- A 50-year-old Chesapeake, Va., man with an unfortunate last name -- given the circumstances -- was arrested at Third Street and 51st Avenue N around 3 a.m. last night after a breath-alcohol test asserted he was at nearly three times the limit at which a driver is considered impaired by the state of Florida.
Randy Joe Beverage, who registered alcohol levels of 0.230 and 0.194, was charged with driving under the influence and possession of a controlled substance after he was found with less than a gram of oxycodone without a prescription.
He is being held in Pinellas County Jail on $2,500 bond ($500 for the DUI).
