A Pinellas County motorcyclist has been charged with driving under the influence after he struck a deputy's cruiser in Seminole.
About 12:15 a.m. this morning, Robert Gold, 56, was riding his 2007 Harley-Davidson southbound on Seminole Boulevard when he stopped in the left turn lane, according to the sheriff's office. Deputy Brian Overton was traveling northbound on Park Boulevard, and as he entered the intersection, Gold started to turn left and struck the front fender of the deputy's marked patrol car.
Gold, of 6181 84th Ave., Pinellas Park, was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries and was released, the sheriff's office said. Overton, who was hired in January, was not injured in the crash.
Gold was arrested for DUI and transported to the Pinellas County Jail.
