The daughter of the Scottsdale police chief had a bloodalcohol content below the legal limit for drunken driving when she was arrested on suspicion of DUI last week, according to information released Thursday by police.

The results for 21-year-old Cody Nicole Rodbell showed her blood-alcohol level was .072, according to police.

Officers last week had said a portable breath-test analyzer showed her level was slightly above the legal limit, which is 0.08.

It now will be up to a Phoenix prosecutor to decide whether to pursue a DUI charge against Rodbell, said Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark.

Rodbell, whose father is police Chief Alan Rodbell, was arrested March 28 by a Scottsdale officer for speeding 57 mph in a 40 mph zone on North Scottsdale Road near Oak Street about 2:30 a.m., according to a police report.

The report said Rodbell had bloodshot and watery eyes and her breath smelled of alcohol. Rodbell told police she drank two beers at Next, a Scottsdale nightclub between 12:30 a.m. and 1:30 a.m., the report stated.

A portable breath-test analyzer measured her alcohol content as 0.081, just over the legal limit, the report said.

The blood alcohol test was done at 3:05 a.m., about 40 minutes after she took the portable breath test, according to the report.

The officer stated in the report he had the case transferred to the McDowell Mountain Justice Court in northeast Phoenix. However, a court date had not been scheduled for Rodbell as of Thursday.
