Florida Man Arrested Two Times In One Night
Donald Gartner of Port Richey, Florida, downed a six-pack of beer and a handful of Oxycontin Sunday night
and proceeded to get arrested for causing a ruckus at his neighbor's house. He found himself released from jail a
few hours later, but wasn't done raising hell. Shortly after being released, he was arrested again for trying to
break into cars in the visitors' parking lot of the jail he was just released from.
Gartner's substance-fueled trouble began when Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies found him crawling out from
underneath bushes at his neighbor's house, according to
The St. Pete Times. His shorts were sagging low on his waste and on backward. A witness claimed he had been
peeing in the bushes. Witnesses also claimed he banged on his neighbor's door, broke the glass panel of a
porch light, and then ripped the light's electrical wiring out of the wall.
The intoxicated 48-year-old was arrested for criminal mischief and booked at the Land O'Lakes Jail at 7:38
p.m. Gartner was released around 10 o'clock that night and was waiting in the visitors' parking lot of the jail for
a ride, but apparently he got impatient. A woman drove up in her Acura. Shortly after she got out, Gartner tried to
get in. She yelled, and he explained he thought it was his car.
Shortly afterward, however, he tried breaking into yet another car. A deputy was watching this time, and less than
two hours after his release, Gartner was taken back to jail.Gartner was charged with two counts of attempted auto
burglary. His bail was set at $10,000, and he's still sitting behind bars.
