ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say a petty amount of cash led to a serious and scary crime.
According to a criminal complaint, Frederico Chavez used his Cadillac to ram his girlfriend’s car several times at a home near Coors and Bluewater.
When Chavez’s girlfriend went outside to close the gate, police say Chavez tried to hit her with his car. Chavez slammed into the gate instead.
Investigators say this was all sparked over Chavez not being able to find $20.
Chavez came back to the house later and was arrested.
He’s now behind bars on aggravated assault and criminal damage charges.
