AZ DPS Director Stopped for Speeding in Yavapai County

05 December 2019  

It was probably meant to be a fast drive to Sedona. Maybe too fast.

Col. Frank Milstead, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, was driving through Yavapai County on October  when he was pulled over for speeding and weaving in and out of traffic.

In the car with Col. Milstead was his fiancé, Angela Harrolle. Harrolle, the CEO of the 100 Club, is the widow of Officer Bruce Harrolle, who was killed in the line of duty in 2008 while rescuing two stranded hikers near Sedona. Milstead and Angela were on their way to the Annual Bruce Harrolle Memorial Hike when they were pulled over by a Yavapai County Sheriff’s Deputy.

According to the Deputy, “The reason I stopped you is this guy was going over 90 mph, weaving through traffic and not using you guys’ turn signals.”

Yesterday, Col. Milstead described the incident himself in a series of five tweets on Twitter. 

 After checking Milstead’s identification, the Deputy gave him a warning and did not write a ticket.
