Report: Arizona sheriff legally drunk in fatal crash

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- An autopsy report shows the Cochise County sheriff who lost control of his vehicle in northern Arizona and died was legally drunk at the time.

The report released Monday indicates Larry Dever's blood-alcohol content was .29 -- more than three times the state's legal limit.

Dever had been driving along a gravel road near Williams on Sept. 18 to meet family members for a camping and hunting trip when his pickup rolled. His speed was marked at 62 mph, but the road doesn't have a speed limit.

The autopsy report also showed that Dever's seat belt wasn't buckled, and authorities noted he had beer and liquor in his vehicle.

Coconino County authorities said last week that Dever had alcohol in his system. But his exact blood-alcohol content wasn't released until Monday.
