ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Most people charged with a deadly crime are arrested and booked into jail. But the APD sergeant charged with vehicular homicide has not been.
Sergeant Adam Casaus was off-duty in his police SUV last month when he sped through a red light crashing into a Honda CRV.
Ashley Browder, 21, a member of the National Guard, was killed in the crash.
Casaus has not been arrested and is due in court in two weeks.
The sheriff's department, which handled the case and charged Casaus, has refused comment on why he has not been arrested.
Sheriff Dan Houston says he will talk to KRQE News 13 about it Thursday.
The D.A.'s office says Casaus is not a danger and that he cooperated with investigators.
He told investigators he was after a drunk driver at the time of the crash, but he never called that in and there is no report of a DWI in the area.
