Marco Antonio Gonzalez-Ramirez - Florida Man Found Passed Out Drunk In Car With 5 Year Old Daughter In Passenger Seat
Tampa, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Marco Antonio Gonzalez-Ramirez, a 28-year-old Tampa Florida man was arrested after sheriff's deputies found him passed out drunk at the wheel of his car as his 5-year-old daughter sat in the passenger seat.
According to the Hillsborough County sheriff's department, deputies found Gonzalez-Ramirez' black Volkswagon parked suspiciously at the intersection of Blossom and Idlewild at around 1:00 a.m. Friday morning.
When deputies approached the vehicle, they found Gonzalez-Ramirez passed out drunk at the wheel. Sitting next to him was his five year old daughter.
Deputies awakened Gonzalez-Ramirez who was described as having watery eyes, slurred speech and the smell of alcohol. Deputies skipped performing a field sobriety test on the man because he was too drunk to stand up, according to the arrest report.
Later, breath tests revealed Gonzalez-Ramirez had a blood alcohol content of .173 and .182 - which is more than twice the legal limit of .08 in Florida. He also failed to provide deputies with a valid U.S. driver's license.
Gonzalez-Ramirez was arrested and charged with child neglect, driving under the influence accompanied by a child and no valid driver's license. He was booked into the Hillsborough County jail where he is currently being held on a $2,750 bond.
The child was turned over to the custody of her mother.
