Prescott and Prescott Valley police officers and Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies arrested seven people for driving under the influence on Super Bowl Sunday during impaired driver patrols from 5 p.m. to midnight.

"The detail was countywide," YCSO spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said.

Three YCSO deputies worked the detail, stopping 17 people, arresting two for alcohol DUI, and one for DUI drugs - marijuana possession, D'Evelyn said.

The Tri-City DUI Task Force saturation patrols were made possible by grants from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety.

"We had four Prescott police officers working a DUI saturation patrol during Super Bowl Sunday," Prescott Police Department Lt. Ken Morley said. "There was one misdemeanor arrest for DUI - alcohol, 41 traffic stops, and 52 citations issued."

A 49-year-old Prescott Valley man was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after he was stopped for traveling 67 miles per hour in a posted 50 mph speed limit zone on Highway 89 and showed signs of impairment, Morley said. Tests showed the man's breath alcohol content to be 0.127, above the legal limit of .08.

Six Prescott Valley police officers targeted impaired drivers in DUI/impaired driver patrols, stopping 54 people and arresting three for DUI, including a woman arrested for aggravated and super-extreme DUI, said Prescott Valley Police Department Sgt. Brandon Bonney.

"It is important that citizens not drink and drive," Bonney said. "Impaired driving puts everyone at risk. Make good decisions and arrange for a designated driver."

Morley said the Tri-City DUI Task Force will continue to conduct high profile details throughout the year.

"Driving impaired is never worth the monetary loss or the physical and emotional devastation that can be caused by simply making that bad choice to drink and drive," Morley said. "Please drive sober, designate a driver, or call a taxi to stay safe."
