A Katie Belle’s employee is facing a charge of drunk driving following his arrest this past week.

Kennedy Aguirresaenz, 49, of Leesburg, had been speeding on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 at about 2 a.m., according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department.

It appeared he had been drinking.

When a police officer asked Aguirresaenz if he had been drinking, he replied, “Yeah, I had a couple,” the arrest report said. He told the police officer he had come from work at Katie Belle’s at Spanish Springs Town Square.

“It should be noted the driver was in his Katie Belle’s work uniform, but the business closes at approximately 2100 hours,” the arresting officer wrote in his report.

Aguirresaenz failed field sobriety exercises and provided breath samples that registered .138 and .151 blood alcohol content.

Aguirresaenz then told an officer he had consumed three beers at Gator’s Dockside beginning at 10 p.m.

When the officer asked Aguirresaenz what time he had stopped drinking, Aguirresaenz replied, “What time is it now?”

He was booked at the Lake County Jail on a charge of driving under the influence. He was released after posting $1,000 bond.


    • What kind of an establishment are they running here? Drunks serving drunks. Everyone goes Oh boo-hoo for this guy, until he may someday smashes his car into someone and kills them. And then they say, How’d that happen?

  1. Again, as I stated with regards to another person, there is no reason to make such a big deal about this man’s job……pure sensationalism. There are enough robberies, etc without the need for these headlines to gain viewers!

    • He he was fired – he could/should and I hope would sue them blind. He is not and has not been convicted of anything….now has he?

      Hell, how many drunk patrons do you think he served and assisted to the door to get into their car/cart and drive home.

      As for James’ post (below) – GREAT idea, dolt. That way they can never get a job, never get to work, go on disability and with luck become real criminals. I am not mistaken in saying your beleifs are very much in-tune with those of a great world leader – Adolf Hitler.

  2. DUI, 1st offense should get 1,000 hours community service, blow tube in his vehicle for 2 years, with 2 years probation.
    DUI second offense should get 2 years behind bars with lifetime loss of license.
