Navajo policeman arrested in DUI fatal crash to be fired

Posted: Updated:

A Navajo Nation spokesman says a tribal officer who is suspected of hitting and killing a bicyclist while driving drunk in Glendale will be fired.
    
Mihio Manus says termination paperwork for 30-year-old Kevin Hevel will be complete this week. In the meantime, he's on administrative leave.
    
Glendale police say Hevel was drunk last Friday when he side-swiped an SUV then struck Peter Rankin, who died on scene.
    
Police say Hevel then drove through a red light and struck a police vehicle.
    
The Navajo Nation has said Hevel was in good standing with the tribal police department where he worked for 10 years.
    
Court records show Hevel has a history of traffic violations.
    
He faces charges of manslaughter, felony endangerment, DUI and leaving the scene. No formal charges have been filed.
