PINELLAS PARK - The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office will conduct a joint sobriety checkpoint with the Pinellas Park Police Department, beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, April 25, through 3 a.m. Saturday, April 26.

The checkpoint will be set up at Calvary Chapel St. Petersburg, 8900 U.S. 19 N. in Pinellas Park, on the west side of U.S. 19. The Sheriff's Office will be diverting southbound traffic from U.S. 19 N.

At the checkpoint, Patrol, DUI/SEU, Community Policing, Narcotics deputies, and Pinellas Park Police officers will be on the lookout for alcohol and drug impaired drivers.

Members of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Traffic Crash Investigations Unit, the Sheriff's Citizen Patrol and Explorer Post 900 will assist with non-enforcement related tasks.

Along with impaired drivers, deputies will be looking for driver's license, registration, insurance, and equipment violations. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Mobile Command Bus will be used for breath testing and the processing of arrested individuals.

The April checkpoint is dedicated to Richard Michael Molinari. On Sept. 9, 1981, an impaired driver struck Molinari's van at Starkey Road and 109th Avenue in Largo. Molinari was 23 years old at the time of the crash and was killed instantly. His wife/passenger, Jo Ann, who was three months pregnant at the time of the crash, was ejected from their vehicle. She survived the crash but later lost the child.

For more information about the sobriety checkpoints, call DUI/SEU Sgt. Michael Paniagua at 727-582-6200 or the Sheriff's Public Information Office at 727-582-6221.
