Navajo president's daughter on leave after DWI arrest

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The Navajo Nation president’s chief legal counsel and daughter has been placed on administrative leave, weeks after she was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The announcement regarding Karis Begaye came Tuesday after sharp criticism online and in Navajo communities about the handling of her employment status, particularly because of prior convictions for driving while intoxicated. Tribal President Russell Begaye initially said she apologized and remained on the job.
