Cameron Carroll

May 1, 6:17 pm

Aggravated DWI (Sixth)

Being unconscious at the wheel led to a Gallup man, Cameron Carroll, 32, being arrested and adding to a substantial DWI charge list.

McKinley County Sheriff’s Deputy Dominic Molina was waved down by a male who told him there was a vehicle parked at the intersection of Metro Avenue and U.S. Highway 491 with the driver reportedly passed out at the wheel.

Molina arrived at the scene and found a green Hyundai Electra with two passengers parked in the middle of Metro Avenue facing the intersection. The report stated the male driver appeared “down and out” when Molina arrived but he woke up and exited the vehicle as Molina pulled behind him.

The driver, Carroll, reportedly displayed signs of intoxication including bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and smelling of alcohol. He stated he believed his vehicle died and denied consuming any alcohol prior to driving. He also did not have any identification on him.

Carroll declined to take the Standard Field Sobriety Tests, allegedly stating he was too intoxicated to pass them before admitting he consumed two shots of 99 Cherries vodka and that he had a warrant for his arrest.

Molina placed Carroll under arrest for DWI. Deputy Frank Villa arrived to check on the other passenger in the vehicle who also appeared intoxicated. The report did not indicate whether she was transported to detox. In total, five open containers of various vodkas were found in the vehicle.

Carroll agreed to give a breath sample and was transported to the sheriff’s office for the test. He posted two samples of .25 and .24 before being transported to McKinley County Adult Detention Center and booked for aggravated DWI (sixth), open container, and driving with a revoked license.

His preliminary examination is scheduled for June 21.
