SANTA FE – Bloody fisticuffs between two of the Kit Carson Electric Cooperative’s elected board last week were captured in a “really, really blurry” video, according to the Taos police.
Lt. David Maggio said on Monday that the town attorney will be asked to review the footage. A police report on the fight between Chris Duran, 44, and Virgil Martinez, 62, isn’t complete. “We are working on this and we are not going to rush it,” said Maggio.
The Nov. 29 fight left Martinez with a black eye, a nosebleed and a bloody lip that was repaired with stitches at the hospital. Religious scapulars allegedly ripped from Duran’s neck were found in the hallway where the imbroglio took place.
