2nd DWI, Aggravated

McKinley County Sheriff’s Sgt. Tammy Houghtaling was notified by metro dispatch that a man was found unresponsive behind the wheel of a blue Dodge Dart. Houghtaling located the car and approached the driver, Alliosn, 50. Alliosn was by that point awake and accompanied by a woman, 26. The woman told Houghtaling she was worried he was in a medical emergency, but Alliosn denied that that was the case, and admitted to having been drinking earlier in the day.

Alliosn was handing Houghtaling his license and registration when the sergeant smelled alcohol coming from his breath, and noticed that his eyes were watery and bloodshot, according to the police report. Alliosn performed poorly on two field tests and failed to complete a third. He also showed signs of intoxication on additional alternative tests. Alliosn blew a 0.16 on two breath tests before being booked for DWI.

Gallup Police Department Officer Daniel Brown was traveling on West Maloney Avenue when a white Jeep pulled out of the Hilton Garden Inn and failed to yield. Brown made a traffic stop on Jimmie, 29, who was driving alone. Jimmie ”fumbled through paperwork, and did not say anything… [his] head was down and he would not make eye contact with me,” according to the police report. The report also stated that Jimmie “had a blank dazed look on his face.” He spoke quietly and slurred his words.

Jimmie admitted to drinking at a party the night before, and that he had stopped drinking at about 2 am. Jimmie showed signs of intoxication on three field sobriety tests, and blew a 0.10 on two breath tests.

He asked where he was headed to, and Bitahey replied that he was headed to Rehoboth Hospital. He denied drinking alcohol that day, and agreed to sobriety testing.
