Council Candidate Faces Extradition

LAS CRUCES — A recently jailed City Council candidate could be extradited on a federal warrant for another charge of drunken driving.

A federal arrest warrant issued March 6, 2009, charges Ryan Matthew Dailey, 23, with drunken driving and unlawfully carrying a 10-inch knife at the Naval Station Norfolk base in Virginia.

Dailey, a logistics specialist with the Navy from 2007-09, was charged with the two misdemeanors Feb. 14, 2009, according to court documents.

It’s not yet known whether the incident is part of the reason Dailey left the military.

In 2010, after returning to Las Cruces, Dailey was asked not to return to the Mesilla Reserve Deputy Marshals program after an incident at El Patio Bar & Cantina in which Dailey was allegedly intoxicated and asked to leave the bar, the marshals said this week.

The incidents in Virginia and Mesilla were made public after Dailey was arrested on charges of aggravated drunken driving, improper lane usage and lack of due care Sunday.

He was released from jail on bond Thursday afternoon.
