ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say it was a very drunk driver who plowed into an apartment building Sunday.
It happened near Menaul and Tramway. The truck caused significant damage to the building.
KRQE News 13 has now learned the man behind the wheel was 46-year-old David Romero.
Police say when they started talking to him, they smelled alcohol.
When they asked him to conduct a field sobriety test, he claimed he would have trouble because of his knees and diabetes, but officers believe he had trouble because he was very drunk.
When they gave him a breath test, he blew a .16 or above, which is more than two times the legal limit.
He’s charged with aggravated DWI.
