Pasco Probationary Deputy Resigns After Crashing into Home, Faces DUI Charges
PASCO – A Pasco County Probationary Deputy found himself on the wrong side of the law early this morning, after a night of drinking led to a crash, DUI charges, and the loss of his job.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 23-year-old Jack Armstrong was traveling northbound on Balsam Ave when he failed to stop at the intersection of Shadow Lake Blvd. As a result, Armstrong drove his 2014 Chevy Camaro straight into the home of 71-year-old Roy Tomlin. Armstrong and Tomlin only suffered minor injuries but damage estimates to the home reached $75,000, say officials.
Armstrong was arrested for DUI, DUI Property Damage, and Careless Driving.
Pasco County Officials say Armstrong began working for the Sheriff’s Office in 2013 as a corrections deputy. Armstrong has since resigned from the Sheriff’s Office.
