Rancher arrested in Skywalk road construction zone

MEADVIEW, Ariz. -- A Las Vegas businessman who operates a dude ranch near the Grand Canyon Skywalk has been arrested for trespassing.

A Hualapai (WAHL'-uh-peye) tribal police officer arrested Nigel Turner on Tuesday. Tribal spokesman Dave Cieslak says Turner ignored orders to leave a restricted construction zone where crews are paving a road to the Skywalk that runs adjacent to Turner's property.

Cieslak says the tribe will recommend to the Mohave County Attorney's Office that Turner be charged with a single count of trespassing. The office said Wednesday that it hasn't received a referral.

Turner contends the arrest came without warning after he asked the crew's foreman whether explosives were being used in construction.

Turner complained of chest pains after he was put into a patrol car and was treated at a Kingman hospital.
