Tyrell Edison Manakaja

Yavapai County law enforcement needs your help finding 34-year-old Tyrell Edison Manakaja.

On Jan. 5, 2015, the Arizona Department of Public Safety received reports that a vehicle was brake-checking other vehicles, driving erratically and ran another vehicle off the road. 

An officer contacted Manakaja, who was operating the vehicle in the area of Milepost 118 on Interstate 40 near Seligman. After an investigation, it was determined Manakaja was under the influence of alcohol and he was arrested. He was found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in excess of 0.20. He was also in possession of marijuana and had an open container of alcohol in the vehicle.

He has a felony warrant with a bond of $50,000 for three counts of endangerment, extreme DUI, possession of marijuana, and an open-container violation.

He is described as an Indian man, 6-foot-2, and 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
