LAND O' LAKES, FL (WFLA) - Pasco County Sheriff's deputies didn't have to go far to make a DUI arrest over the weekend.

They caught up with 29-year-old Christopher Lindsey Smith at 20101 Central Boulevard in Land O' Lakes. That's the address of the Pasco County Jail.

According to Smith's arrest report, staff at the detention center were checking on an unresponsive driver seated the the driver's seat of a gold 2004 Chevy Impala with the keys in the ignition and the radio blaring. Investigators say after several minutes of banging on the windows, Smith woke up.

Deputies say they could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the car and there was an open container of beer in the cup holder. They say Smith admitted he had a "couple of beers" and stated he had dropped a friend off at the jail. Deputies arrested him and took him to central booking, which was only a few feet away.

Deputies say Smith refused a breath test. He was released Monday morning after posting bond.
