Man arrested in NM for 22nd drunk driving offense
AP via Breitbart ^ | Aug 25, 2009 | N/A

Police said a man was arrested on Monday for his 22nd drunken driving offense—and his blood-alcohol content tested almost five times higher than New Mexico's legal limit. State Police Lt. Eric Garcia said an officer pulled up to a car parked along a highway and found a 51-year-old man on the ground near his vehicle. "He was coherent," Garcia said. "He showed signs of slurred speech, as might be normal for any DWI arrest, which led the officer to believe he might be driving under the influence."

Garcia said the suspect had to be taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent hospital in Santa Fe, where a blood-alcohol analysis showed a content level of .393 percent. New Mexico's limit for presumed intoxication is .08 percent.

Police said records showed the man has been arrested five times in New Mexico and at least 16 times elsewhere.

No. He will be a new resident at Dept. of Corr. N.M. Assuming he doesn’t die during detox.

parsy, who says 4 times and you’re “in” in Arkansas.

That’s nothing. Virldeen Redmon of Anderson, Indiana holds the world record with over 400 arrests going back to 1947.

Twice and you’re in in CT. And no license for a year when you get out.

Only applies to Americans. Illegals are exempt under section 2A and/or 2CA, same sections that gives them free health care for life.

If he gets more time in prison then Donte Stallworth I will be mildly upset.

Well, he was driving. They found him puking, pissin’, poopin’, or passed out.

He certainly would be eligible to be a Massachusetts senator.

He said he kept getting them because when he got to the 24th one he’d get a free hat. /sarc

As I understand it, New Mexico is the only state that allows alcoholic drinks to be purchased at a drive through window.

They are not the only one. But, it may surprise you, I think drive thru windows are good.

They do brisk business. It’s good for the economy.

I do not, however, support DUI. Go get your beverage of choice and go home.

If you go out to drink, you better have a DD or money for a ride.

Drive throughs were banned over five years ago in NM. Now you have to be sober enough to walk into a gas station convenience store. Here in SE NM on Friday nights, over half the store has cases of beer stacked head high.
