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.
