SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A notorious drunk driver is back behind bars in Santa Fe.

Scott Owens was out on bond for a DWI arrest back in February, but he was booked into jail Wednesday after allegedly failing a court-ordered drug test which violates his conditions of release.

Owens was acquitted in a 2009 drunk driving crash that killed four teenagers and severely injured another. He was arrested again in 2012 for aggravated DWI and speeding.

He later plead guilty.

Owens is set to be in court next week. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
