Martin Wilcots, a Pinal County risk-management specialist, was recently arrested by Casa Grande police for reckless driving, open container, and drug possession. Police say Wilcots was in possession of 30 grams of marijuana, 3.6 grams of cocaine, and drug paraphernalia at the time of the arrest. The arrest took place in Casa Grande near the intersection of Arizona 287 and Pottebaum Avenue around 7:45 PM on Thursday, April 5th.

According to law enforcement officials, Wilcots’ blood alcohol concentration was 0.096 percent, which is above the legal limit of .08 percent. Wilcots was pulled over by Casa Grande police after he was observed making a turn without a turn signal, driving the wrong way on a one-way street, and nearly striking pedestrians near an apartment complex.

The county communications director for Pinal County has stated that they have placed Wilcots on administrative leave. Employees of the County are placed on administrative leave as a first step before any further disciplinary actions can be taken.

Wilcots has been employed by Pinal County’s Human Resources Department for five years.
