Arizona man arrested for 10th DUI

Arizona man arrested for 10th DUI

By Rhys Saunders The Daily Times

FARMINGTON San Juan County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested an Arizona man Sunday for his 10th DUI, according to Sgt. Tyler Truby.

Andrew Holiday Sr., 56, of Kayenta, Ariz., was charged with DUI, not having insurance, not having registration, not having a driver's license, not staying within traffic lanes and possession of an open container of alcohol in a vehicle, deputies said.

When deputies pulled over Holiday's vehicle at around 10 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 64 near the 34 mile marker, he crossed the center lane and shoulder several times before coming to a stop, deputies said.

When approaching the car, deputies immediately smelled alcohol on Holiday's breath and found an open beer can, deputies said. When asked for his license and registration, Holiday tried to give a deputy two one-dollar bills as his license after flipping past it several times.

After performing a series of field sobriety examinations, the results of a breathalyzer showed Holiday had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .24, three times the legal limit, deputies said.

Truby said he could not determine how drunk Holiday was given his blood alcohol content, but noted that Holiday was definitely "highly impaired."

Holiday was then booked into the San Juan County Detention Center, deputies said.
