DPS Officer Arrested for Refusing to Leave Women's Restroom

Categories: News


Something interesting was happening last Saturday during Country Thunder in Moonshine Willy's women's bathroom, because DPS officer Steven Svestka refused to leave it. 

Pinal County Sheriff's Department received a call around 10 p.m. saying that Svestka, 41, was "being disorderly and refused to leave the women's restroom area," according to a report.

Moonshine Willy's is a "family-friendly honky-tonk" located in Florence, according to its website. It's got a full-size rodeo arena and roping dummies. When sheriff's deputies got to the bar, they noticed Svestka was pretty trashed, and after they asked him to leave, he refused. 

Deputies had to escort him off the property. 

But no sheriff's officer is going to bully Svestka around (c'mon, check out that Viking-looking beard), so to prove to everyone who really was calling the shots, Svestka knocked into other patrons and caused some of them to fall as deputies escorted him outside, the report says. 

But now it was the sheriff's turn to get a dose of the Viking-beard fury, because after he got outside, Svestka "became enraged and assumed a combative posture."

Deputies finally cuffed Svestka, and booked him on one count of disorderly conduct and hindering a government operation.

So what was so interesting in the women's bathroom that officer Svestka refused to leave?

DPS spokesman Bart Graves says Svestka's wife was sick in the bathroom. As a good husband, Svestka might have been a little more adroit at dealing with the law, since, well, he's an officer of the law and all.

Drunk, beligerent cops getting preferential treatment are a dime a dozen.  If he hadn't been a cop he would have been charged with assaulting an officer at some point.

I wonder if Lieutenant Blake King of the Pinal County Sheriff's Department sent an e-mail to the head of the Pinal County Attorney's Office Charging Division asking to have this DPS officer released before being booked and to have the arrest record scrubbed from the state system like he did for Ronald Keys when Keys was partying with his friends from the Tucson Police Department at Country Thunder and was arrested for assaulting police officers in 2011.

This DPS cop looks like a likely member of the Iron Brotherhood motorcycle gang. It would make sense that he wouldn't leave the women's restroom area if he indeed is a member of that police motorcycle gang. Members of the Iron Brotherhood like to sit down like little girls when they have to pee. DPS is involved in a cover-up regarding a bar fight that the Iron Brotherhood were involved in. DPS needs to release the results of their investigation and stop covering for these crooked, criminal, unethical cops. By not releasing the report it makes all police departments (DPS especially) look corrupt.

This guy looks more like a hardened criminal than an officer of the law.  I would hate to be Mexican and get stopped by him.
