Illegal immigrant arrested for DUI


 Jorge Mendez-Perez
Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies spotted a suspected drunk driver Tuesday night, but when they tried to pull him over, he fled.

Besides a possible DUI, the reason for the attempted traffic stop was due to the driver speeding in excess of 85 miles per hour, along with cutting in and out of lanes.

The pursuit came to end near Interstate 10 and Dysart Road where a deputy blocked the intersection.

31-year-old Jorge Mendez-Perez eventually pulled over and deputies had to force him out of his pickup truck, which slammed into a MCSO cruiser because it was still in gear.

Deputies say Mendez-Perez smelled of alcohol and he was arrested for DUI.  Nine empty cans of Bud Light were in his truck, along with two full cans.

Mendez-Perez is an illegal immigrant and didn’t have a driver’s license.
