Home Detention in Scottsdale

Home detention is now available in the Scottsdale City Court. This is welcome news for people charged with a DUI in Scottsdale. This allows a majority of the jail sentence to be served at home instead of in jail.

UAPD Arrested on Extreme DUI Charges

At the beginning of this month, in preparation for the Super Bowl, police departments increased DUI enforcement across the country trying to decrease the number of DUI arrests. Unfortunately, that plan did not work out well for the University of Arizona Police Department (UAPD), as one of their on duty officers was taken into custody over the weekend. Sgt. John McGrath was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence Saturday night after being involved in an accident with a marked UAPD vehicle. Sgt. McGrath was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.20, which is classified as a Super Extreme DUI.
