HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A driver was nearly three times the legal alcohol limit when he slammed into a home in Town ‘n’ Country on Wednesday, deputies said.

Marcelino Gomez Gomez was driving a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder on Paris Street West around 9 p.m.

Deputies said Gomez’ blood-alcohol level was .233 and .231, almost three times the legal limit.

He was arrested for driving under the influence and no valid driver’s license, according to the report.
