Nevada man files papers to run for sheriff, gets arrest for DUI an hour later

SHARE Nevada man files papers to run for sheriff, gets arrest for DUI an hour later

A Nevada man running for sheriff wasn’t already drunk on power. But unfortunately, cops say he was too drunk to be driving.

Ron Rylander, who told the media he has a “checkered past,” had just finished up filing his paperwork to run for Elko County Sheriff and within the hour, was cuffed and stuffed into the back of a cop car for felony DUI, according to the Elko Daily Free Press.

While talking to the media, police received a call from someone at the courthouse who reported an intoxicated person, according to Lt. Ty Trouten. Two police officers arrived at the county courtyard and stayed in close proximity to Rylander. After Rylander drove away, the police officers did as well. Trouten said Rylander was pulled over for making an improper turn and because the officer knew Rylander did not have a valid license.

The 51-year-old was booked into the county jail for a third-offense DUI, driving without proof of insurance, driving left of the center line and driving with a suspended license.

But wait, there’s more.

Rylander’s “checkered past” that he referenced while talking to the media includes being arrested on disturbing the peace charges after making repeated non-emergency calls.

Don’t worry voters. Just after filing his paperwork and before being arrested, Rylander said his familiarity with the jail system offers a unique perspective.

And his campaign platform? Jail reform.
