Not a Tasty Beverage

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.

Beverage 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).
