Former Crime Stoppers chair pleads guilty to DWI

Former APD officer pleads guilty to DWI

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The former chair of Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers program has pleaded guilty to DWI.

Pat Davis was arrested last July after he rear-ended a car at Broadway and Cesar Chavez.

Deputies say Davis blew at least two times the legal limit.

A judge sentenced him to six months probation Thursday.

After his arrest, Davis stepped down from the Crime Stoppers program.

He was once a spokesperson for the District Attorney’s office, a lieutenant with University of New Mexico police and in 2010 Davis ran unsuccessfully for Bernalillo County Sheriff.

Davis is currently the head of the left-wing group, Progress New Mexico. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
