In a statement issued by Scottsdale police Chief Alan Rodbell about his daughter’s, Cody Nicole Rodbell, recent DUI arrest in Scottsdale, Rodbell said he was upset and concerned for his daughter, and thanked the public for its support.
In the statement issued through a Scottsdale police spokesman, Rodbell said, “I’m upset and concerned for my daughter and my wife and I want to help. I also recognize that my daughter is an adult, living outside the home, and she has to take responsibilities for her actions.
“As the chief of police, I think the message is clear that drinking and driving is serious business. Our responsibility is to save lives, often by removing impaired drivers from the street through arrest.”
Cody Nicole Rodbell, 21, was arrested about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday after a Scottsdale police officer pulled her over for driving 57 mph in a 40 mph zone on North Scottsdale Road near Oak Street.
According to a portable breath-test analyzer, her blood alcohol content measured 0.081, slightly over the legal driving limit of 0.08, the police report said.
The officer who arrested Rodbell said he filed the case in the McDowell Mountain Justice Court in northeast Phoenix, but as of Friday, no initial court date had been scheduled, according to a clerk at the court.
