ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police say they arrested 46-year-old Joe Montano for his seventh DWI on Thursday in northeast Albuquerque.
Montano, whose license is already revoked for previous DWI’s, is in custody and charged with aggravated DWI, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court.
Police say an officer spotted Montano speeding down Eubank NE, driving recklessly, before pulling into a gas station.
When the officer followed him into the parking lot, Montano got out of the truck and began walking away, according to the compliant.
Police say Montano refused to obey the officer’s orders to stop and tried to flee.
“I watched as he tripped and fell to the ground and tumbled,” an officer wrote. “I pulled my Taser out, pointed the red dot on him, and told him if he got up I would Tase him.”
