PORT RICHEY, Fla. (FOX 13) – A New Port Richey man was arrested for DUI after driving away from deputies at a slow speed, they said.
Late Thursday night, a Pasco County deputy noticed a white van run a red light. The deputy attempted a traffic stop but the driver of the vehicle refused to pull over.
Deputies said the vehicle continued to drive away at speeds between 15 and 35 mph, despite their marked vehicles following with their emergency lights and sirens activated. They said they observed the vehicle strike a basketball hoop.
Eventually, deputies said the vehicle finally stopped after they deployed stop sticks — causing three of the four tires to deflate — near the intersection of Embassy Boulevard and Glen Moor Lane in Port Richey. The driver, 56-year-old Gordon Ormond, was the sole occupant, they said, and exited the vehicle. Deputies said he tried to pull away from them as they attempted to place him in a patrol vehicle.
Ormond also told them his license suspended, deputies said. They checked and it turned out his driver’s license was revoked on July 5, 1991, and he had four previous DUI convictions.
Deputies said Ormond appeared impaired and was arrested for DUI, failing to submit a breath test, leaving the scene of a crash and fleeing. They said it was his 12th arrest for driving with a suspended or revoked license. http://www.fox13news.com/news/local-news/pasco-man-arrested-on-his-fifth-dui-charge-had-license-revoked-in-1991-deputies-say

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A man convicted of killing an Indianapolis Colts player and his Uber driver during a drunk-driving crash in 2018 will spend time in federal prison as well.
Manuel Orrego-Savala was sentenced to 16 years on state charges in the crash that killed linebacker Edwin Jackson and Uber driver Jeffery Monroe. A federal judge sentenced him to an additional 42 months (3.5 years) for illegally reentering the U.S. after being deported. Orrego-Savala had pleaded guilty.
Federal prosecutors said Orrego-Savala was in the country illegally after having been deported twice before.
On Feb. 4, 2018, Orrego-Savala was driving a pickup truck on westbound I-70 when he hit the two men, who were standing at the side of the road after Jackson became sick. Orrego-Savala’s blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.

The 42-month sentence will be served consecutively to his 16-year state sentence, according to U.S. District Chief Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson. He’d previously pleaded guilty to two counts of causing death while operating a motor vehicle. The judge gave him the maximum sentence.
Orrego-Savala is originally from Guatemala. He was deported from the U.S. in 2007 after being convicted on drug charges. He came back to the U.S. in May 2009 before being deported a second time. Federal prosecutors said he illegally reentered the U.S. yet again.
“Mr. Orrego-Savala re-entered the country illegally for the second time before he put the public safety of Indianapolis at risk and took the lives of two innocent men on February 4, 2018,” said U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler. “This prosecution represents our office’s commitment to charging aliens that illegally reenter the country, especially if they are a risk to public safety or there is a criminal history present.” https://fox59.com/2019/09/17/man-who-killed-colts-player-uber-driver-in-drunk-driving-crash-sentenced-on-federal-immigration-charge/
A Mexican property developer from one of the country’s wealthiest families has been arrested after his 11-year-old son died during a boating trip.
Javier Burillo, 57, was held on suspicion of manslaughter and operating a boat under the influence, police in California said.
The boy and his older brother were allegedly thrown overboard by a wave and then struck by the boat.
Mr Burillo posted $1m (£800,000) bail on Monday, local media reported.
Tiburon Police Chief Michael Cronin said Mr Burillo and his family were on a family trip on Sunday in waters near San Francisco when the boys, 11 and 27, were knocked overboard.
The boys were then allegedly hit by the vessel Mr Burillo was operating. Mr Cronin said there was a “fair possibility that they were swept under” or were hurt when their father turned the boat to rescue them.
“He was operating the boat, he had that choice, and the negligent part of it is the alcohol,” Mr Cronin told reporters.Skip Twitter post by @WayneFreedman

Rules are rules. You just can’t drink and drive.
Police pulled over the vehicle when they noticed a case of beer on the roof and that the men driving were drinking out of open containers.
“It is a vehicle. It’s on the roadway and the OVI (Operating a Vehicle Impaired) laws do apply,” Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Joe Dragovich told KALB “You’re not allowed to drink and drive or operate a buggy.”
The officers found a 12-pack of Michelob Ultra on top of the buggy and say the men were drinking other alcohol while they drove, according to WAVY. KALB specifies that the bottles they were drinking contained spiked iced tea.
When the men were pulled over, a short chase ensued, police said. It concluded when the men fled into a wooded area, leaving the horse and buggy behind. Authorities had the buggy towed and the horse was taken to a temporary home, KALB reported.
Now, authorities are hoping the men will come forward.
“Maybe there’s just that fear of the consequences and that would be a reality for them, that there are consequences,” Dragovich said. “But I encourage him to come forward get their buggy and horse.
The sheriff’s office said that a buggy is a vehicle — just like a car, so similar laws regarding drinking would apply. The men could face additional charges for refusing to comply when pulled over, KALB reported.https://news.yahoo.com/2-amish-men-were-pulled-203345149.html;_ylt=AwrXnCLb9IRdXUkAfCXQtDMD;_ylu=X3oDMTByb2lvbXVuBGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg–
