A Spring Hill man was arrested for DUI after his blood alcohol level tested at .316, deputies say.

Hernando County deputies say their aviation unit received a call about a gold Toyota Scion driving recklessly in the Hibiscus Springs apartment complex in Spring Hill.

Witnesses told officials of deputies a man identified as 24-year-old Collin James Daniel was the driver, crashing into mailboxes and other vehicles in the area, according to a press release. After the clashes, Daniel parked his car and walked up to a man walking his dog.

Deputies say a fight started between the two, and Daniel pushed the man. The man began to loosen his grip on the line of his German shepherd, and Daniel ran away.

Shortly after the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office helicopter located Daniel lying on his back between two air-conditioning units. He was arrested and charged with DUI and battery.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers tested Daniels’ blood alcohol levels, and the results showed that it was at .316 percent. The legal limit in Florida is .08 percent.
