A drunk driving suspect was arrested in the wee hours Saturday when a Lake County sheriff’s deputy clocked him driving 87 miles per hour in a 50 mph zone near the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 441 and Lakes Boulevard in Leesburg.
It appeared the driver, 47-year-old Antonio Luis Pabon of Leesburg, had been drinking. The deputy could smell alcohol on his breath and noted that Pabon had slurred speech and glassy eyes. The native of Puerto Rico told the deputy that he drank three beers throughout the night, according to the arrest report. After Pabon performed poorly on standardized field sobriety tests, he was placed under arrest for driving under the influence. He was transported to the Lake County Jail where he provided two breath samples which indicated blood alcohol levels of .141 and .133. Bond was set at $1,000.
