FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – The 17-year-old son of the San Juan County district attorney has avoided criminal charges after he allegedly obstructed authorities investigating a party at his home.
The Farmington Daily Times reported Saturday that Robert Tedrow, son of District Attorney Rick Tedrow, will likely have to undergo community service or counseling through juvenile services.
According to county sheriff’s officials, deputies responded to the Farmington home the night of May 7 about a fistfight at a party.
A police report says Robert Tedrow appeared intoxicated and allegedly pushed a deputy in the chest with a stack of newspapers.
Deputies say they found 20 intoxicated teens inside the home, including one who had to be hospitalized.
Rick Tedrow told the newspaper that his son is dealing with the repercussions of his decisions.
