ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A suspected drunk driver has been arrested for allegedly running from the scene of a rollover crash. Albuquerque police say a Chevy sedan clipped another vehicle and went rolling near Coors and I-40 around 1:00 a.m.


Story continues below:


A man and woman in that car reportedly fled on foot into a nearby arroyo. Officers tracked the car’s owner, Levi Lucero, to his apartment where Lucero reportedly refused a field sobriety test.

Lucero was arrested for DWI and a breath test later showed he was above the legal limit. He’s also charged with reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, and tampering with evidence.
