TIERRA VERDE, Florida -- A 46-year-old man has been arrested for DUI and careless driving after he lost control of his truck and wound up in Tampa Bay.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Richard Newhouse was traveling north on State Road 679 south of Madonna Blvd. when he attempted to make a U-turn and lost control of his truck.
He then reportedly drove off the road, across a grass shoulder, and collided with a chain link fence before winding up in the waters of the Tierra Verde Marina Resort.
Newhouse allegedly had a blood alcohol level of 0.256. He was arrested and taken to the county jail.
