DWI, 1st

MCSO Deputy Roxanne Slim was dispatched to the railroad tracks at the Iyanbito crossing to check on a vehicle that was still running but no driver could be seen. When Slim got close enough to see the driver, she knocked on the window before banging even harder to get the driver, Duffy, Jr., 43, of Ft. Wingate, to wake up.

Agreeing to a field sobriety test, Duffy quickly failed and was placed under arrest. When getting into the unit, Duffy hit the left side of his head and received a cut near his left eye. Slim cleaned the cut and closed it. Duffy’s mother was called to pick up the vehicle and Duffy was transported to the Sheriff’s Office for a breath test, which showed a BAC of 0.18 and 0.17. Slim then transported Duffy to GIMC for medical clearance on the cut to his head, and then to McKinley County Adult Detention Center
