Board revokes former cop’s certification after DWI charges

SANTA FE (KRQE) – The former officer accused of driving drunk and crashing into a building will not be able to work as a police officer in New Mexico.

In September, Santa Fe police tried to pull over former cop Jesus Bencomo Zubiate. Investigators say he fled, slamming into a building near the plaza.

Police say he was drunk and was taken to jail.

The New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy Board has now revoked his certification.

He worked for the Santa Fe Police Department for four years before being fired earlier this year. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
