During conversations with Stinchfield, she allegedly said that she was drunk. Following the field sobriety tests, Stinchfield was arrested. A search of Stinchfield's vehicle revealed a plastic bag containing a white crystal residue which field-tested positive for methamphetamine. Stinchfield was transported to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office where an analysis revealed her blood alcohol concentration to be .223. She was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail without incident. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
