Naked New Port Richey Man Arrested For DUI

On August 2, 2011 Deputy Britton Drew responded to the area of Usher Tower on US Highway 19 in reference to a reckless driver.  The Sheriff’s Office received a complaint that a dark in color Dodge was driving north in the southbound lane on Highway 19.  Deputy Drew located the Dodge Intrepid with a North Dakota tag in the Rosewood area off State Road 24.    Deputy Drew observed the vehicle on the shoulder of the road and noticed that the driver would not get out of the vehicle.  The driver continued to act suspicious and refused to show his hands.  The driver was later identified as Kelly Michael Bachmeier and he was completely nude.  Drew requested back up due to Bachmeier’s behavior, demeanor and refusing a lawful order.    Upon back up arriving Bachmeier was again ordered numerous times to show his hands and exit the vehicle and he refused.  Deputies were forced to shoot Bachmeier with a taser because he would not show his hands and it was unknown if the suspect had a weapon.   Bachmeier was arrested for driving under the influence and an expired North Dakota driver’s license.  Bachmeier blew more than four times the legal limit (.334 and .315) on the intoxilyzer.  Bachmeier was transported to the Tri County Hospital and had a blood alcohol limit of .390.   Defendant:   Kelly Michael Bachmeier 3900 Eli Drive New Port Richey, Fl W/M, 03/23/68     ###
