The Albuquerque realtor who ran over and killed a homeless man last year with his Hummer has allegedly failed a drug test.

Chris Pino claimed the victim was breaking into the Trinity Methodist Church on Silver in Nob Hill.

Last month, Pino pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter, which carries up to six years in prison. 

He is set to be sentenced in two weeks.

According to court documents, Pino tested positive for meth earlier this month. 

It also says Pino denied using meth, but drug tests show otherwise.

If so, Pino would be violating his conditions of release.

Pino was scheduled to go before a judge Tuesday, but the hearing had to be rescheduled because he was in the hospital.
