Teen accused of causing wreck while high

Crime

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a teen for allegedly causing a crash while high.

According to a criminal complaint, BCSO responded to a rear-end crash at Coors and Arenal on Thursday night. 

Deputies say the driver, 18-year-old Jose Rafael Rebollo-Arenivas, had bloodshot, watery eyes and had a difficult time walking.

Rebollo-Arenivas admitted to using weed, cocaine and smoking wax right before.

BCSO says his juvenile cousin was also inside the car at the time of the crash.

Rebollo-Arenivas appeared in court this weekend, where Judge Christine Rodriguez released him on his own recognizance. 

“He is going to be supervised by pretrial services so that would include drug testing as well,” said  Judge Christine Rodriguez.

According to online court documents, he has no prior criminal history in New Mexico.
