Man Charged with DUI After Crashing into Tree, Served Time for Marijuana Cultivation

SPRING HILL – A small SUV crashed into a tree at a residence on Elwood Road this evening, leaving the driver to explain how the accident happened.

Around 6:00 p.m. Fire Rescue responded to 5008 Elwood Road, after the driver of a Nissan SUV veered off the roadway, broke through a utility pole guy-wire, and struck a tree. The driver, 32-year-old David Michael Gula, only suffered minor injuries and refused medical treatment.

According to sources, Sheriff’s Deputies arrived on the scene and immediately suspected that Gula may be impaired. Gula participated in a series of sobriety exercises and was subsequently taken into custody and transported to the Hernando County Jail.

In 2014 Gula was charged with cultivation and possession of marijuana over 20 grams, after detectives discovered several plants and 2 lbs. of processed marijuana inside his residence on Montano Ave. Gula served approximately 7-months behind bars after pleading guilty to the charges in 2016.

It is not known at this time what substance Gula is suspected of being under the influence of that resulted in today’s crash.

  • He is always so nice when I go into to his place of employment. Really doubt he is on meth as someone stated on this past not sure you know what a person on meth looks like if you think he has a meth face. People make mistakes and many at that. Just glad no one was hurt.

  • I’m giving this guy the benefit of the doubt. With all the B.S. coming out of the HCSO these days, I frankly have my concerns about anything they say/do. I’m a thinking man hated by sheeple. The crowd is oftentimes wrong. Keeping an officer caught masturbating on the job while in a government vehicle just defies all logic to a thinking man.
