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.
