Silent Witness, Catch 22 Day 21 captured

Day 21 of Yavapai Silent Witness’ Catch 22 Program and fugitive Jennifer Christine Nack has been captured.

On Thursday, Feb. 22, agents with the U.S. Marshals Service were able to locate and arrest Nack in El Cajon, California.

In November 2019, Nack was operating a vehicle that was observed by a Prescott Police officer driving erratically. After failing field sobriety tests, Nack was arrested for driving under the influence. During the investigation the officer located a clear plastic straw with white residue inside of it. Nack later admitted to using the straw to ingest cocaine.

Nack was placed on probation; however, she has violated the terms and conditions of her probation, absconded and a nationwide felony warrant had been issued for her arrest. 

Nack is currently in custody in El Cajon awaiting extradition back to Yavapai County.  The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office thanks its partners with U.S. Marshals Office for safely taking this suspect into custody. 

Double DUI case in Cottonwood, one man seriously hurt

Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) deputies say a suspected impaired driver suffered serious injuries when his speeding vehicle left the road and went down a steep embankment on Saturday. Meanwhile, a second person suspected of driving under the influence was also arrested when he attempted to pass emergency crews, including a helicopter, at the scene.

A deputy noticed a car being driven erratically on Main Street in Cottonwood about 2 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 24. The vehicle was speeding and crossed the center line several times, and as it turned onto Highway 260, the deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop. However, the driver turned off all lights and accelerated up to 100 mph. Just a few seconds later, the car failed to negotiate a turn, slid off the road and down a 200-foot slope. The driver, a 22-year-old Cottonwood man, was thrown from the vehicle about halfway down the embankment and suffered serious injuries, including a possible neck fracture. Deputies called for a helicopter to transport the man to Flagstaff Medical Center.

As medical personnel were taking the victim to the aircraft, which had landed in the middle of the now-closed highway, deputies and a Sedona Police officer assisting with traffic control saw a vehicle attempting to pass all emergency vehicles and the running helicopter by driving on the shoulder.

They were able to finally stop the car, and arrested the driver, a 51-year-old Camp Verde man, on suspicion of driving under the influence.
