Discussion has sparked over driving under the influence checkpoint protocol after a man was permitted to continue to drive without having interacted with officers at Levy County New Year’s Eve DUI checkpoint. The man instead offered up his license and registration along with a flyer taped to his window “I Remain silent, no searches, I want my lawyer,” without ever opening his windows for officers.
An Earleton man is claiming he was physically abused at the Alachua County jail by staff 15 months ago.
