LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a Las Cruces man on child abuse charges after he was found driving recklessly with a teenager on top of the vehicle.
The Las Cruces Sun News reported Thursday that 23-year-old Dominic Estrada is now facing a charge of child abuse, reckless driving and driving under the influence of alcohol.
