ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The chair of the Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers and executive director of a progressive advocacy group was arrested early Saturday morning under suspicion of drunken driving.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Pat Davis, 35, around 12:30 a.m. on the 1300 block of Broadway. He’s facing an aggravated DWI charge.
Davis was heading south on Broadway near Cesar Chavez when he rear-ended another vehicle, according to Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cpt. Sid Covington. Deputies arrived at the minor accident to find that Davis appeared drunk, and he failed field sobriety tests, Covington said.
He then submitted to a breath test that showed his blood-alcohol concentration was higher than .16, twice the legal limit and the threshold for an aggravated DWI charge, Covington said.
