ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man who was mistakenly released from jail is now back behind bars.
The Albuquerque Police Department arrested John Sena a few weeks ago at the Church’s Chicken on San Mateo and Candelaria after a fight with his girlfriend.
Police say Sena kicked one officer and went for the other’s Taser, then tried to strangle the officer with his own lapel and radio cords.
When Sena faced Judge Michelle Castillo Dowler, she released him on his own recognizance thinking he would be held on a probation violation.
However, paperwork from Probation and Parole was faxed to the jail instead of emailed, and was discovered after Sena was already released.
U.S. Marshals added John Sena to the most wanted list Monday morning.
They now say task force officers were able to arrest Sena near San Mateo and Zuni on Monday afternoon.
