Santa Fe sheriff gets car back after going to court

santa fe county sheriffs office

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) –  A former Santa Fe county sheriff who had his car seized under a DWI law fought that law and won.

Last year, Greg Solano’s daughter slammed his BMW into a brick wall while driving drunk. Since, it was her second arrest, the city took the car even though it didn’t belong to her.

Solano pushed for a similar DWI seizure law when he was sheriff, but now feels they’re unfair.

He took the city to court and has now gotten his car back.
