Mason City woman caught drunk driving again after citizen complaints

MASON CITY – A Mason City woman was arrested for drunk driving after citizens once again complained to law enforcement about her alleged operation of her motor vehicle.

Kristy Gaye Arzberger, age 59, was stopped on June 15, 2019 at about 7:05 PM in the area of 340th and Vine Avenue in Cerro Gordo county. According to Sheriff Kevin Pals, “a citizen called in a complaint on her driving.”

Arzberger was arrested on a charge of second-offense operating while intoxicated and taken to jail. She later posted a $2,000 cash bond and was released. She’ll face a July 16 hearing.

A suspected drunk driver who turned out to be Arzberger was called in on Saturday night, October 14, 2017 around 8 PM, near Thrush Avenue and 305th Street in rural Cerro Gordo county. “A couple of witnesses called the suspected intoxicated driver in and followed the suspect vehicle until deputies arrived,” Sheriff Kevin Pals told NIT after the arrest. After she was stopped and arrested, Arzberger later entered a guilty plea to first-offense operating while intoxicated and was fined $1,250 – but half was waived by a judge. She also completed drunk driving school and got a certificate of completion.

Arzberger was cited by Mason City police for first-offense operating while intoxicated for an incident that took place back on May 29, 2010.  But, over two years later, in November of 2012, a judge dismissed the charge.

Arzberger, Kristy Gaye

    Why make such a big deal about this? OWI’s happen all the time. What makes this such a big event? Though I do think that it’s great that all these perfect people (who don’t even have the courage to give their names when they decide to attack someone) take the time to comment. By the way, what’s that quote, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”? It’s so wonderful we have so many sinless people here in Mason City.

      Most comments on NorthIowaToday are anonymous, including yours. It saves people from having to deal with an unknown array of internet trolls. Kristy Arzberger knows a lot about anonymous, it is how she gets her dirty work done. Drunk driving is a serious crime. Drunk driving kills people. I hope Kristy stops driving drunk before she kills somebody. Kristy is relentless in making sure people get charged with crimes and are held accountable. She deserves the same.

    i love how quick people are to judge while they hide behind “anonymous”.

    I”m not making excuses for her, she broke the law. And i do believe she may need help, again not for me to say.

    to those who spoke of karma and her getting what she deserved… do you have first hand knowledge of this? And if so was she your lawyer or the opposing one? Be careful what you say cuz in your words “karma is a beeatch!”

    Matt: Who was the judge that dismissed her first OWI in November of 2012? And if you can find out what he based his decision on, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      No, you can do stuff like that yourself. You must have thought this was the library.

        It was a simple question, which, by the way, was not directed to you. But I suppose some people need to display their ignorance in some way.

            Hmmm. Sounds like someone is defending her and her actions. Makes you wonder why, and does he have some “connection” in her. Sorry, with her. Oh well, This subject is beginning to bore me, so on to another topic about Mason City’s elite. Thank you.

      it was based on the fact that shes rich and a lawyer. it was based on the fact that they (judges and lawyers) are corrupt and work together to ensure the streets always have criminals in them to keep themselves in a job. nothing mysterious about it. same old corrupt us vs them mentality. anyone in the court system around here or in city government is gonna get a break because cerro gordo is insanely corrupt.

    Third DUI, not good, she needs to get help before she hurts herself or someone else. She is a darn good attorney. The previous break/warning they had given her apparently didn’t work. She needs professional inpatient treatment. I am simply gonna wish her the best towards finding good treatment and peace.

    She should’ve registered as a Democrat and stolen 2.2 million. They wouldn’t even prosecute.

      i concur, at least the majority of people take their drinking and driving out onto county roads. ever seen the sides of the roads around here? people who drink busch light are a bunch of losers that seem to really like drinking behind the wheel of their hick trucks, to hell with those of us that have an expectation of safety on our roadways. also yes she is damn hard to look at with that beach body and man killer face.
