Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested James Algot Dahl, 53, of Lake Havasu City, early Tuesday (9/13) evening for aggravated DUI – suspended driver’s license, a felony, and a failure to pay fines misdemeanor warrant issued by Lake Havasu City Municipal Court. At about 7:09 p.m., deputies were flagged down by several vehicles in the area of the Lake Havasu Water Safety Center regarding a reckless driver who almost ran other vehicles off the road. Deputies were provided a description of the vehicle. Shortly thereafter, deputies observed the vehicle traveling southbound on Highway 95, approaching Oro Grande. The vehicle swerved and almost struck a cement guard rail and the vehicle continued turning onto Oro Grande. Deputies conducted a traffic stop in the 3300 block of Oro Grande. Deputies contacted Dahl, the driver. Deputies smelled a strong odor of alcohol on Dahl. During conversations with Dahl, he admitted to consuming three straight drinks of whiskey within the last hour. A records check revealed Dahl to have a suspended driver’s license. Dahl refused the field sobriety tests (FST’s) while he said, “I’m drunk, just take me to jail.” Dahl was taken into custody and transported to the Mohave County District III Substation where an analysis revealed his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to be .177%. He was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail without incident. Deputies located six open whiskey bottles inside the vehicle. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
