Lyle Alexius, 27, Gallup, N.M.

Alexius was charged with his second DWI on May 22 after being called in as a reckless driver and then being struck by a train at the County Road 1 crossing. Even after being hit by a train, Alexius remained in the driver’s seat “trying to mess with the keys while [they were] in the ignition.”

Neither Alexius or his passenger sustained any serious injuries. His passenger, 22 year old Jordan Etsitty, was taken to Gallup Detox. Alexius was transported to the hospital for a blood draw and taken to jail. He was also charged with open container and driver’s license required.

Because of the strength and resilience of our ancestors and their Navajo leaders, the Treaty of 1868 was signed on June 1, 1868, between the Navajo Tribe and the United States of America.
