TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - The US Marshal's Office is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Christopher Ponce, wanted by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office for DUI Manslaughter.

Ponce, 24, is accused of fatal accident on I-275 on June 19, 2012. HCSO says Ponce's vehicle collided with another, killing the driver and injuring two passengers. Ponce was arrested for DUI and later charged with DUI Manslaughter, vehicular homicide, DUI with serious bodily injury, and reckless driving.

Ponce was last known to live in Tampa, however his whereabouts have been unknown since May 9, 2013, when he removed his ankle bracelet and fled.

Ponce could be anywhere across the U.S. or beyond and it is important to remind the public not to attempt to apprehend Ponce, but to report any information to the U.S. Marshals Service or their local police. To speak with the case agents, Deputy U.S. Marshal Jared Whitis or Task Force Officer Ron Simpson, please call the U.S. Marshals in Tampa, FL at (813) 415-1967.

    Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is changing management rules of invasive lionfish to remove them from state waters. Lionfish was introduced to state waters in the 1980s, and since then, populations have boomed in recent years, negatively impacting native wildlife and habitat, the FWC says.
