Drunk Driving and Speed Chasing in New Mexico
Albuquerque, NM (January 7, 2019): New updates are in on an alleged drunk driver who led a police officer on a speed chase. The accused drunk driver failed to maintain position in his lane when a police officer attempted to pull him over. Instead, the accused sped up, reaching speeds as high as 117 miles per hour. The pursuit went on until the accused pulled over and hit a cattle guard before fleeing on foot. That’s when the officer caught him and the accused eventually surrendered. As it turns out, the driver already had four DWI convictions, and a fifth one will mean a mandatory sentence of one to two years in jail.
