TUCSON - Early Thursday morning, the University of Arizona Police Department stopped a car traveling on Campbell Ave. which was on the wrong side of the road. The driver of the car was Jeffrey Zyla, the CFO for Carondelet Health.
Zyla was spotted by officers driving northbound in the southbound lanes of Campbell Ave.
When he was stopped by UAPD, officers noted that he had a strong smell of intoxicants.
According to police reports, Zyla told officers that he had only had a couple beers and hasn't been on medication since his last knee treatment.
He later went on to contradict himself saying he was taking multiple medications for allergies, the flu and his knee injury.
After revealing this information, Zyla refused to take a breathalyzer test and a warrant was issued to have his blood drawn.
After the police station blood draw, Zyla requested that an independent blood draw was taken.
He was then transported to TMC.
Zyla was taken to the hospital where he received his test results.
A police officer observed him tear up his results, throw them in the trash and say he was disappointed to himself.
Zyla was then transported to the Pima County Jail where he has since been released.
We reached out to Jeffrey Zyla for comment, but his phone was disconnected.
We also reached out to Carondelet Health for comment and they told us that they do not want to make a statement on this incident at this time.
