DUI suspect had five times legal limit
CLEARWATER – Clearwater Police arrested a Largo man on June 2 for a DUI shortly after noon in the 900 block of Cleveland Street, according to a police report. The suspect’s blood alcohol content was nearly five times the legal limit, registering at 0.394 and 0.395. Police found him asleep behind the wheel and was taken to Morton Plant Hospital to be medically checked out, due to his extremely high intoxication level. Police say the suspect told officers he thought he was bass fishing at Eagle Lake Park. Henry Trevino, 48, was charged with DUI and was taken to the Pinellas County Jail where he was being held on a $500 bond.

Williams earns mentor award
CLEARWATER – Clearwater Fire and Rescue Lt. Larry Williams of Station 50 in Countryside was honored on June 2 as the recipient of the city’s Motivational Mentor Award. Williams is frequently lending a hand as a mentor and leader to other personnel at the fire department.

He is viewed by his peers as tactically sound, well-rounded and well-respected. He has been with the fire department for 18 years.

Kids learn about stranger danger
CLEARWATER – Clearwater police officers recently visited Palmetto Park Apartments to teach children about stranger danger. Officer Selena Hyppolite talked to more than a dozen children about how to handle themselves when they encounter strangers, and then the kids got to go outside and tour the command bus and take turns sitting in police cruisers. The children got a chance to sound the different sirens on the cars and otherwise got an inside peek at their police department.
