A Sarasota County music teacher was arrested Sunday for the fourth time since 2001 on drunk driving charges. Ronald Jodwalis has been convicted twice on DUI charges and has now been arrested for DUI on two other occasions. The Venice Middle School music teacher had a blood-alcohol level of 0.30 and is now in Sarasota County jail on charges of driving with a suspended license and DUI.
The arrest began when a deputy was alerted that a car was swerving on a Sarasota County road. Jodwalis was tracked down at a gas station. According to the Sarasota Herald Tribune the man was eating the plastic wrapper of a sandwich when cops pulled up to him. The 52-year-old suspect allegedly admitted to drinking and could not stand up. His blood-alcohol level was later determined to be nearly four-times the legal limit.
