Florida Man Booked Into Jail For 30th Time Since 2001

PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) — A Charlotte County man is being held in jail on drug charges, his 30th booking since 2001.

A sheriff’s office press release says 43-year-old Anthony Earl Horner of Punta Gorda was arrested Monday on charges of possession of methamphetamine and narcotics paraphernalia. He was also charged with a felony of habitual driving while his license was suspended or revoked.

It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.

Jail records show Horner has been arrested on the same charge of driving while his license was suspended or revoked since 2001. The following year he was charged with grand theft and burglary.

The press release says Horner was driving an ATV Monday morning. When the ATV was inventoried for towing, authorities found a glass smoking pipe with methamphetamine residue, a plastic lock-type bag, and two Q-Tips.

Horner was booked into the Charlotte County Jail where he is currently held with no bond.
