Parks director apologizes for DUI

Carson City Parks and Recreation director Roger Moellendorf apologized Tuesday for "extremely poor judgement" following his arrest Saturday on a drunken driving charge.

"I exercised extremely poor judgement to get behind the wheel after I'd been drinking and in the process of doing that I may have put myself, my wife and the public in peril," he said.

Moellendorf, 56, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to yield at 11:56 p.m. Saturday in the 1800 block of North Carson Street after he pulled out from John Street onto Carson Street in front of a Carson City deputy.

According to the arrest report, Moellendorf blew a .128 on a preliminary breath test. The legal limit is .08

"I know that public officials must be and should be held to a higher standard and I feel bad that i didn't accomplish that," Moellendorf said Tuesday.
