Former Alachua City commissioner arrested in second DUI case

Columbia County Sheriff's deputies say Ben Boukari was driving a black Ford Explorer on U.S. 90 west of I-75 Monday afternoon when he hit another vehicle and drove off.

When deputies tried to pull him over, they say Boukari sped away, nearly hitting several cars.

When they eventually pulled him over, he wouldn't obey their orders, so they tased him.

Deputies say he appeared to be drunk. He was taken to jail and released on Tuesday.

Boukari was also arrested for a DUI hit- and- run last May.
