Police: Woman’s alcohol nearly three times legal limit


On February 2, blood test results came in for an arrest made in late November of last year when the suspect, Acaysha Dolfin, 55, was found driving under the influence. The test results showed nearly three times the legal limit of alcohol in her system.

On November 29, 2021, at 9 p.m., police responded to a welfare check at Native Grill and Wings, located at 21164 North John Wayne Parkway.

According to police documents, the caller, Dolfin, sounded intoxicated. She allegedly told police she had been drinking, and that she believed a man was following her on a bicycle.

Dolfin said that she was pulling into the Bashas parking lot, police say.

When police arrived, Sargent Jordan from Maricopa Police Department spoke with Dolfin, who was sitting in the driver’s seat of her car, with the vehicle running.

According to police documents, Dolfin had told Sgt Jordan that she had two drinks at Native and that they had cut her off.

Dolfin had performed poorly on all the standardized field sobriety tests, and at 9:10 p.m. police placed her under arrest, adding up to a third DUI arrest from MPD in 84 months, along with a suspended license from a previous DUI.

Police brought Dolfin to the MPD station for DUI processing, and at 9:46 p.m., police completed a blood draw and sent it to department of public safety for testing.

Results for the blood test came back on February 2, showing her blood contained 0.233 ± 0.012 grams of ethanol, well past the .08 legal limit.
