HUDSON, Fla. (WFLA) – A former Pasco County Sheriff’s Office probation deputy is out of a job following his arrest early Sunday on a driving under the influence charge.
Jack Wayne Armstrong Jr., 23, is also facing a careless driving charge stemming from an incident that occurred just after 2 a.m. in a Hudson neighborhood.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Armstrong was traveling north in his 2014 Chevrolet Camaro on Balsam Avenue approaching the intersection of Shadow Lake Boulevard when he failed to stop. Investigators say Armstrong didn’t even slow down as the vehicle struck a stop sign before colliding with a residence at 13204 Shadow Lake Blvd.
The structure suffered approximately $75,000 worth of damage. A resident, 71-year-old Roy Tomlin, suffered minor injuries. The driver suffered minor injuries including a cut to his forehead.
Armstrong resigned from his position with the Sheriff’s Office shortly after he was charged. He’d been working in the corrections department since 2013 according to a release issued by PCSO.
