LARGO — A Pinellas sheriff’s lieutenant was fired after she was charged with driving under the influence, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Christi Ruhtz, 41, was first hired by the agency in December 1998 and was working in the Public Records Processing Unit until Sunday morning.
About 1:49 a.m., a person called authorities, saying a driver near the intersection of 130th Avenue and Wild Acres Road was driving in reverse while honking a horn. When deputies arrived, they found Ruhtz, the only person in the vehicle.
