Tampa DUI News – Osceola County Assistant Principal Arrested For DUI In Tampa

Tampa DUI arrest

An assistant principal at Osceola County’s St. Cloud High School was arrested in Tampa and charged with a Hillsborough County DUI. According to numerous reports on Orlando TV station websites, 35-year-old Jeffrey Schwartz was arrested following a 1:00 a.m. stop Saturday in Tampa.

According to one report Schwartz was driving the wrong way down a Tampa street when he was stopped. He has since bonded out of jail. Schwartz’s arrest has burned up the Internet in his hometown and his mug shot has even ended up as the profile picture on numerous Facebook accounts according to My Fox Orlando.

The TV station is also reporting that the Osceola County School District has confirmed that Schwartz followed correct procedure and notified them of his DUI arrest on Saturday. With school set to re-open in just a couple weeks following summer vacation, it was not reported whether Schwartz was expected to still be assistant principal at St. Cloud High School following the arrest when school returns to session.

Click Orlando reported that Schwartz refused a breath test at the Hillsborough County jail and that his bond was set at $500. There was no mention if the school administrator preformed any field sobriety tests at the scene of the stop. Records indicate he was booked into jail around 3:00 a.m. Saturday.

Schwartz will have 10 days from the time of his arrest to challenge his license suspension, which could be a year-long due to his refusal to give a breath sample. He will also need to make a court date with the Hillsborough County Clerk of Courts within that same time frame.  His case will be assigned to Judge James Dominguez based on his last name beginning with an “S”. His first court date will be an arraignment. If he hires a qualified Tampa DUI attorney, he will most likely not need to come to Hillsborough County for that phase of the case.
