Patagonia Deputy Marshal arrested for Felony Criminal Damage and Possible DUI

Last week a Patagonia deputy marshal was arrested for felony criminal damage and could be charged with a DUI. Johnny Tynes drove into a utility pole around 5:30am, knocking power out for a nearby neighborhood. The officer on-scene noticed signs consistent with alcohol intoxication which lead to a DUI investigation. Depending on those results there may be additional charges filed.

Patagonia Marshall Joe Patterson expressed his feelings in an Arizona Daily Star Article:

“If you’re out and impaired, give me a call and I will get you a ride home,” he said. “I would go out any time of the day or night to pick somebody up to take them home safely and not endanger the public. With that being said, I am very opinionated on DUIs. There’s no reason, no excuse. If you think you can get away with risking your life or risking someone else’s life by doing something that stupid, you’ve got another thing coming.

“I’ve talked to Deputy Tynes and he knows exactly how I feel about this situation and I will be taking future actions,” Patterson said.

The Tucson Police Department investigation is ongoing.
