Clearwater, FL (April 27, 2020) – A Florida man was arrested twice in the span of a single week for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The first offense took place on April 22, when Florida Highway Patrol troopers arrested 23-year-old Henry Francis Davis for fighting with another Clearwater driver. Before this arrest, Davis’ breath samples were approximately twice the legal limit. He was booked into jail and later let go on his own recognizance – no bond payment was made.
The second arrest occurred on April 27, when police were receiving reports of a reckless driver almost hitting other vehicles on the road. Officers pulled Davis over, at which point he said, “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t be driving”, and nearly fell while getting out of his car.
Davis was then arrested and brought to jail, where he was released on a $500 bond. According to affidavits, Davis has a third DUI arrest from around five years ago in California.
