Cameron Edward Smith

Sept. 24, 5:16 am

DWI (Third)

A motor vehicle crash on Interstate 40 resulted in a Church Rock man, Cameron Smith, 25, being arrested and charged with his third DWI.

New Mexico State Police Officer Rachel Hall was patrolling within McKinley County when Central Communications Dispatch advised that a DUI incident had occurred near the 19 mile marker of I-40. Hall was dispatched to the scene to assist Gallup Police Department.

Hall arrived at the scene and met GPD Officers Ryan Boucher and Elijah Bowman, who said they administered the Standard Field Sobriety Tests,  and the driver, Smith, had performed poorly on the tests, but did not smell of alcohol.

They suspected he could be under the influence of narcotics. Hall spoke to Smith and observed numerous signs of intoxication, including bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and difficulty maintaining his balance.

Smith told Hall he had not consumed any alcohol or narcotics prior to driving, and Hall said she needed to verify if he was able to operate a vehicle following the crash. Smith agreed to take the Standard Field Sobriety Tests once more.

Based on his performance on the tests and the investigation, Smith was placed under arrest for DUI. He agreed to the breath test, which did not yield any results.

Smith was transported to Rehoboth McKinley Christian Hospital for a blood draw before being taken to McKinley County Adult Detention Center and booked for DWI (third) and driving with a revoked license. His pre-trial hearing is set for Oct. 26.
