Repeat drunk driver behind bars accused of 10th DWI

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) — A repeat drunk driver who’s been on the news before is the subject of another story.

Police say a drunken Rayburn Apache was behind the wheel Friday night near Central and 98th.

Eyewitnesses say the 43-year-old almost wrecked into other cars, then suddenly struck a pole.

Officers say Apache wreaked of alcohol could hardly stand or walk and refused to cooperate.

Last September, police say Apache was driving a stolen truck when he smashed into a truck at Central and Zuni.

That vehicle then hit and injured an Albuquerque police officer.

In court Saturday the judge laid into Apache and set his bond at $50,000 cash or surety. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
