Driver charged with DUI, leaving crash scene
A Gainesville man was arrested Saturday for causing a multiple-car crash while driving under the influence before leaving the scene of the crash, according to a GPD report.
Police said Jeffery Wayne York Jr., 28, of 840 NW 55th St., was driving while intoxicated early Saturday morning when he crashed his car into the rear-end of another vehicle, which caused that vehicle to hit the rear-end of another car.
Both victims contacted the police, and York began arguing with both parties before leaving the scene, the report said.
Police were able to use a license plate number provided by one of the victims to locate York at his residence.
Police said York admitted being involved in the crash and to leaving the scene before taking part in a field sobriety tests in a nearby parking lot.
York also gave breath samples that registered .241 and .242, which is more than three times the legal limit in Florida.
