DWI (first offense)

Gallup Police Officer Richard Rangel said he received a report of a possible drunk driver in the area of East U.S. Highway 66 and Woodrow Avenue.

He drove to the area and found the vehicle and made a traffic stop. The driver, Tso, 27, of Crownpoint, showed signs of being intoxicated. He admitted to Rangel he had three drinks earlier that evening.

He agreed to take the standard field sobriety tests and failed. After he agreed to take a breath alcohol test, he blew two samples of .11 each.

Feb. 23, 3:48 pm

Aggravated DWI (first offense)

Gallup Patrolman Norman Bowman said he came in contact with Lee, 28, of Iyanbito, after another officer stopped him for failing to stop at a stop sign.

Lee showed signs of being intoxicated and admitted drinking vodka earlier in the day. He agreed to take a field sobriety test but halfway through the first test, he stopped and refused to go any further.

He then refused to take a breath alcohol test and was arrested.


William Conn

Feb. 22, 7:03 pm

Aggravated DWI

Gallup Patrolman Brandon Salazar said he was dispatched to the 17-mile marker on Interstate 40 in connection with a one vehicle accident.

When he got there, he found a red pickup next to the guard rail. The driver was asleep behind the wheel.

Salazar said when he woke the driver up, he saw open containers of liquor in the vehicle. Conn, 32, of Mentmore, was told to exit the vehicle and had problems keeping his balance, said Salazar.

Conn refused to take the standard field sobriety tests and was arrested for DWI. Later, he agreed to take a breath alcohol test and posted two samples of .27.


Aames James

Feb. 21, 5:16 pm

Aggravated DWI

Gallup Police Patrolman Caleb Kleeberger said he was on regular patrol driving on North Third Street when he saw a car with heavy front-end damage.

The car matched the description of a vehicle that had been involved in a hit and run accident earlier in the day. He ran the license plate and it came up as being suspended.

When he stopped the vehicle, he talked to James, 35, of Albuquerque, who told him the car had been damaged a while back. Kleeberger said James showed signs of being intoxicated so he asked him to take the standard field sobriety tests.

He agreed but failed the tests and was arrested for DWI. He then agreed to take a breath alcohol test and posted two samples of .18.
