Ducey said Thursday that Col. Frank Milstead is “one of the good guys," and “even good guys make mistakes.” Milstead said on Twitter on Wednesday that the incident in October was regrettable.

A report by AZFamily.com found that Milstead was driving 90 mph and weaving through traffic without using his turn signals.

He was let off with a warning after showing the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office deputy his department ID.
