KINGMAN - Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Robert Jay Knipe, 51, of Golden Valley Wednesday for felony aggravated DUI. Deputies responded to an intoxicated subject passed out in a vehicle in front of a convenience store in the 3600 block of Highway 68 around 6:35 p.m. Deputies contacted the reporting party who said a man was passed out inside a vehicle but had woken up and left about two minutes prior. Deputies were given a license plate number of the vehicle. A computer check showed the vehicle to be a 2001 Dodge Dakota registered to Knipe. Deputies located the vehicle traveling on Cross Ranch Road towards Highway 93 and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle continued traveling.

A search of the vehicle revealed an empty beer can and a 30-pack of beer with one beer missing. A records check showed Knipe to have a suspended driver's license.
