San Tan Man Charged With DUI After Crashing Into Cop Car

Dylan Fann was at least twice the legal limit when he smashed his car into the back of a police cruiser this morning.
Of all the things you don't want to crash your car into while cruising around shitfaced, a cop car is pretty high on the list.

This morning, Dylan Fann, 29, of San Tan, did exactly that.

According to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, about 1:30 a.m., a PCSO deputy was stopped in his patrol car at a red light at the intersection of Hunt Highway and Gary Road.

Fann slammed into the back of the deputy's cruiser.

The deputy got out of his patrol car to check on the driver of the other vehicle. Once he realized Fann wasn't injured, he discovered he was driving on a suspended license and there was a warrant for his arrest after he failed to appear in court on November 29.

Then, the deputy suspected the man who'd just rear-ended him at a stop light might be a little tipsy.

Fann refused to submit to field sobriety tests, and was taken into custody on suspicion of aggravated DUI.

After getting arrested, Fann continued to refuse to submit to sobriety tests. He even refused a chemical test to determine his blood alcohol content.

Deputies were forced to get a warrant from a local magistrate in order to draw Fann's blood to figure out his BAC.

Several hours after his arrest, Fann submitted to a breathalyzer. He blew a .163 -- more than twice the legal limit. Again, he blew a .163 several hours after slamming his car into a police cruiser.

In other words, we'll never know exactly how shit-canned he was when he crashed into the cop car.

Fann was booked into the Pinal County Jail on one count each of aggravated DUI and aggravated assault on a law officer.

Any time a deputy claims something ridiculous like this happens, I feel pretty confident assuming at this point that nothing of the sort actually happened..

Another l-o-s-e-r. Luckily this inbred bloke didn't kill anyone.

all the comments sort of hang a guy before he even got booked,   now after the fact all the charges were dropped, except the suspension, which was for not wearing his glasses,  funny that after the blood test came back, the charges were dropped,  shows that the breath test was wrong, but its nice to see how every one want to presume guilt

from the looks of his mugshot, I say we check him for meth also....

Nice driving, there, stud.

1. Suspended license ( probably from a previous DUI )2. Too tore up for road trips3. Rearends a police car stopped for a light

Now I would owe this all to inebriation, but this is Phoenix where the dexterity and intelligence needed for successful motoring ( when sober ) are skills that have evaded 97% of the locals.

Sheriff Joe's erstwhile ass kisser, Davey Hendershott ( AKA The Big Tuna ), has a son with a Hummer who racked up two DUIs in one week. Sweet !!!

Even Governor Jan can't get it right... She gets all tore up and then slams her sedan into the rearend of a min-van that was inconveniently stopped in traffic at an interstate interchange. I guess that sea of brake lights confused her gubernatorial booze guzzling ass.But our Governor Jan doesn't even get a citation or a bill for cleaning up the wreckage. She gets a ride home from the cops. See, Jan's got it like that.

On an evening awhile back I was at the corner of 19th. Ave. and Peoria. Southbound cars were stopped for the light, with all lanes occupied. I saw a PPD Crown Victoria traveling south and thought to myself, "Damn, dude's going awful fast". The cop, apparently now seeing the impending peril, pushed the brake pedal of his car into the carpet. With the Crown Vic's tires screaming in protest and smoke pouring off of the melting rubber, the cop swerved into the opposing northbound lanes, and when the cruiser finally came to a stop it had passed two cars and was in the crosswalk. Oops !

The absolute mindlessness that passes for motoring in this town brings to mind that 100 year old saying:"Get A Horse".

So basically, he was still literally drunk even after several hours but in police custody. He wasn't able to sober/or wise up after quite some time.

Thank goodness it was a police car he ran into and not a school kid.

One of two possibilities exist reference his possible BAC:

(1) His BAC had peaked at or before the crash and then went down as his system metabolized the alcohol, thus showing the .163 hours afterward, or

(2) his BAC was less than .08 at the time of the crash and continued to climb until the blood was drawn several hours later.

Prosecution will assume (1) is correct.

Defense will assume (2) is most correct.

We likely won't ever hear the outcome, but it's interesting to speculate, all the same.

I'm surprised that this assclown wasn't hurt. Bet his BAC was at least .20

is it a Hummer or one of those faggy h2s.

Sorry, but my beer fell over

Ford Crown Victoria sedans have been known to occasionally detonate upon violent rearend collisions. And that's the reason for the "Vics" demise ( police depts. no longer cared to assume liability for the fuel flow flaw ). I will attest to the the fact that a Crown Vic is one of the sturdiest, most reliable cars ever made, I can't say if crashing into a cop is the lesser of two evils over a school bus.
