Here’s a look at today’s headlines:
A robbery suspect is back in jail after failing to meet the conditions of his release. David Benny Dunnavan allegedly robbed the Family Dollar in December of last year and was required at a hearing later that month to keep in constant communication with an adult probation officer, which he had failed to do, and also failed to show up for a drug test. Dunnavan was placed into custody at a hearing on March 13th and remains at the Grant County Detention Center without bond.
A 47-year old woman from Cliff was arrested for aggravated DWI, careless driving, and having an open container in the vehicle after crashing into a tree on her way to work at Sixth Street Elementary School. The teacher allegedly failed to perform a pair of sobriety tests given at the scene. She was transported to Gila Regional Medical Center for possible internal and head injuries. State Police had her provide a preliminary breath test, which allegedly registered a .28. She was placed under arrest, refused chemical testing, and was later released on her own recognizance.
