BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton man is facing an enhanced DUI charge following his arrest by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Daniel Stenderowicz allegedly had an open Corona in his car — and admitted to earlier drinking with friends — when he was clocked at 73 mph on Military Trail, in a 45 mph zone.

Stenderowicz, according to a police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, blew a .187 and .192 during breath alcohol tests. The legal limit in Florida is .08. Anything over .15 leads to an enhanced charge.

From the police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com:

“On 05-13-21 at approximately 2318 hours, I was stopped in my marked patrol vehicle, in the left turn lane of southbound S Military Trail in the area of ​​intersecting Monterey Ln. As I was stopped, I observed a white 2020 Acura, bearing license number [redacted], approaching from the rear traveling southbound at a high rate of speed. As the vehicle passed me in the number one lane, I visually estimated the vehicle to be traveling at 70 mph. I used my department issued Stalker Radar which gave a reading of 73 mph in a 45 mph zone.

I caught up to the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop with a final resting place at Pheasant Way and Pheasant Dr. I approached the driver side window where I met the driver and sole occupant, later identified by his Florida license as Daniel Stenderowicz (09- 09-85). OBSERVATION OF DRIVER: advised Stenderowicz for the reason of the stop and requested his vehicle information from him. I immediately noticed Stenderowicz’s eyes were red and glassy and there was an odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle.

As I spoke to him, I noticed his speech from him was also very slurred and mush mouthed. I also noticed an opened bottle of Corona beer behind the front passenger seat on the floor. After Stenderowicz agreed to perform roadside tasks, I had him exit the vehicle where he lost his balance and stumbled out of the vehicle. He also dropped his registration of him when trying to hand it to me.”

According to the police report, Stenderowicz had issues completing a field sobriety test.

“WALK & TURN: Stenderowicz had difficulty standing and remaining in the starting position. He lost balance while in the starting position stepping off the line several times stating “I can’t do this.” He stated he couldn’t do this because of him working out his legs earlier. He missed heel to toe on several steps during the task and used his hands for balance. He lost his balance several times during the task, stumbling and haying to reset himself on the line. He made an improper turn by pivoting around to return back down the line. It should be noted Stenderowicz stated “pivot” when making the turn.

ONE LEG STAND: Stenderowicz swayed while standing during the task. He dropped his raised foot several times during the task After dropping his foot from him the first time, I needed to instruct him to continue the task. FINGER TO NOSE: Stenderowicz swayed while standing during the task. When initially starting the task, Stenderowicz started leaning forward almost falling causing me to extend my hand to prevent him from falling. Stenderowicz continued the task- but kept his eyes open during the duration of the task. He missed the tip of his nose several times during the task, touching the bridge of his nose instead. ROMBERG ALPHABET: Swayed while standing during the task.”

Daniel Stenderowicz was charged with “DUI – Unlawful blood alcohol .15 or higher” and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 2:29 Friday morning. He was released on his own recognizance at 9:24 a.m. The 35 year old Stenderowicz list the 4900 block of Covey Trail in Boca Raton as his home address.

A court date is pending.
