Warrant issued for Albuquerque grandma busted for DWI


A warrant has been issued for the grandmother caught driving drunk with her 6-year-old grandson in the car. 

Brenda Colwell was arrested at Central and San Pedro in September. 

Police say Colwell’s eyes were bloodshot, her speech was slurred, and she admitted drinking a 32-ounce alcoholic juice. 

After pleading guilty earlier this month, Judge Brenda Rodgers sentenced Colwell to one year supervised probation. But according to court documents, she skipped probation intake last week and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
