Kiowa Gordon Arrested for Outstanding Mesa Municipal Court
August 10, 2011
The Mesa Police Department arrested Kiowa Gordon for an
outstanding misdemeanor warrant issued by the Mesa Municipal
Court. On 08-08-11 at approximately 6:50 AM, the Mesa Police
Department dispatched a police officer to meet with the Tempe
Police Department for a misdemeanor warrant hand-off. This is
standard protocol for Phoenix area law enforcement agencies when
a subject is arrested for a warrant from another local
municipality. Kiowa Gordon was a passenger in a vehicle
registered to him when he was stopped by the Tempe Police
Department. During a registration check on that vehicle, it
showed the registered owner (Kiowa Gordon) had two outstanding
misdemeanor warrants for his arrest. The first warrant was
issued by the Mesa Municipal Court ($1000 bond) and the second
had been issued by the Scottsdale Municipal Court ($500 bond).
Kiowa Gordon was arrested by Tempe PD for the outstanding
warrants. There were no new charges as a result of Tempe Police
Department's contact with Gordon.
The Mesa Police Department took custody of Kiowa Gordon from the
Tempe Police Department at 2630 W. 8th Street and he was
transported to the Mesa City holding facility for processing on
the outstanding Mesa warrant. The warrant was for a failure to
appear charge out of the Mesa Municipal Court, with a bond
amount of $1000.
On 09/02/2010, Kiowa Gordon was arrested by the Mesa Police
Department for driving under the influence of drugs. During that
investigation, Kiowa was stopped by a MPD Traffic Officer when
his vehicle was observed drifting into the bicycle lane in the
area of Southern and Superstition Springs Blvd. at approximately
9:20 PM. During the traffic stop, the officer observed numerous
clues of impairment and suspected Kiowa was under the influence
of marijuana. After completing a DUI investigation, Kiowa was
arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. Based on the
observations of a drug recognition expert, it was believed he
was under the influence of cannabis and was unsafe to drive a
motor vehicle. Kiowa Gordon was processed for DUI and was later
released with a citation to appear in the Mesa Municipal Court.
The Mesa Municipal Court issued an arrest warrant for Kiowa
Gordon for failure to appear on the charges stemming from this
investigation on 02-25-2011.
Kiowa Gordon was not investigated or charged with any new DUI
related charges on 08-08-2011.
