Mesa Man Arrested for DUI for Meth

In the early hours of May 22nd, Aaron Onufrock of Mesa was arrested for suspicion of DUI and drug charges after he allegedly took cocaine and methamphetamines. According to the report, Onufrock’s wife contacted Mesa Police when she did not want to let him into the house after he went on a drug binge, and he fled the scene in his Camaro. When police caught up with him, they noticed his speech was slurred and his behavior was erratic. Onufrock allegedly told police that he could not get out of his car because his legs were broken and his lungs hurt.

Mesa Police searched the vehicle and found a bag containing a white powdery substance, containers containing a white residue, and two meth pipes. The 43 year-old reportedly told police that he had consumed cocaine and methamphetamines and spent $800 on drugs.

The Arizona DUI laws state that it is illegal to drive if you are impaired by any level of drugs or alcohol. According to the Maricopa County Superior Court, Onufrock has been charged with aggravated DUI and drug violations. The aggravated DUI charge is based on Onufrock driving with a suspended license which was the result of a prior DUI. This is a class 4 felony in Arizona. If he is convicted of the aggravated DUI, he will face the following penalties:

  • At least 4 months of incarceration,
  • At least $5,000 in fines,
  • Revoked driver’s license,
  • Ignition interlock device when his driving privileges are restored,
  • Drug and alcohol treatment,
  • Community service,
  • Possible impoundment of his vehicle, and
  • At least 5 years of probation.
