Report: Yavapai County Sheriff David Rhodes Cited For OUI Last Weekend At Lake Powell

Yavapai County Sheriff David Rhodes is in trouble with the law himself. “The Daily Courier” reports Rhodes was at Lake Powell last Saturday boating with friends. He tried to help a friend park a boat at Wahweap Marina at around 6:25 p.m. and clipped another boat in the process. The paper reports Rhodes was cited by the National Park Service for possible OUI, or boating under the influence, which is a Class B misdemeanor. The charge is for having a blood-alcohol content of .08 or higher. The sheriff said in a statement, “I deeply regret my actions and have learned from this mistake.” He adds, “I am sure you are disappointed and that’s fair, however I am more disappointed in myself.” Rhodes is in his first term as Yavapai County Sheriff.
