LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – Records from the Clark County Detention Center show that Las Vegas Constable John Bonaventura was arrested Tuesday night for DUI and speeding.

Nevada Highway Patrol Information Officer Loy Hixson said a call came in at 8:30 p.m. concerning a suspected drunken driver on U.S. 95 and Boulder Highway. Troopers observed a constable’s vehicle speeding southbound on the 95.

The vehicle was stopped, and Bonaventura submitted to a field sobriety test. Troopers say he failed it. He was booked into CCDC after an evidentiary test.

The arrest comes at a poor time for the beleaguered constable’s office. Clark County commissioners will discuss the possible elimination of the office at Tuesday’s meeting, a process that could take until 2015.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
