There are worse things to be convicted of than getting a bit on the way.
Shame about the car though... and I hope the lass is OK.
An Albuquerque man found himself on the wrong end of a cuffing on Monday after cops claimed he had been engaged in drunken rumpy-pumpy behind the wheel. Local police said he had jumped a red light, ploughed into another vehicle and then attempted to evade justice by hiding in a cactus bush. Police mugshot of Luis Briones …
Good point, surely we hope for equal treatment across genders.
Technically, the fact the lass was ejected (I surely hope she's now ok) quite possibly implies she was on him, thus we can surely imagine he was considered the (busy) driver, sat in the driver seat and belted, unlike her (passenger ?). Therefore, he's the only one being arrested.
Surely, some very interesting talk, at the trial !
"having sexual intercourse of some sort while driving", this one really made my day :-)
My reading of the charge sheet was that the driver was arrested for "red light violation, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless/aggravated driving while under the influence, no insurance and refusing to obey a police officer" - no mention of "sexual intercourse of some sort" so maybe that wasn't illegal?
Or it could just be part of the global feminist conspiracy to get the male population locked up allowing woman to rise up and take over the world.
She wasn't driving. They've charged him with driving offences.
I imagine they could charge her with indecent behaviour or something, but they're minor charges compared to his. Probably couldn't be bothered with the paperwork.
As for refusing to give a blood sample, I imagine there wasn't much left to sample, they should have just collected it off the cactus!
She did nothing illegal. Nothing he did would have been illegal either (except for refusing to obey an officer) had he not been driving at the time.
Though I've long been of the opinion that both parties contributing to 'road head' related accident should be charged with reckless endangerment the authorities seem to disagree with me. Seriously, if you can't keep it in your pant from point A to point B at least pull into a parking lot where you're not going to cause a wreck, especially if the reason you can't keep it in your pants has to do with alcohol.
Who gives a rat's rear end about this Luis and his stupid tart? What about the poor buggers in the car that was hit?

This is why you end up with nanny state laws. No one gives a f*ck if you crash your car because you had temporarily stunned your last remaining brain cell with alcohol while attempting behavior non-conducive to responsible road use with the vehicle in motion.
They care that you walk away from the damage you inflict on others with your f*cktard antics.
My only question is: why no tasing? It would have seemed like the perfect opportunity for target practice.
For his sake I hope it wasn't a jumping cholla with the detaching spines.
Seconding the request for a Playmobil recreation. If it helps, New Mexico isn't *THAT* far (in astronomical terms) from Nevada which contains Area 51 where they're bound to be keeping Optimus Prime.
I hate driving through Albuquerque, and one of the reasons is that I40 is seriously overloaded, and all it takes is one asshole like this on I40 to totally bring it to a stop. Not SLOW - STOP. I've been stuck for 3 hours just trying to get to an exit, so I could take surface streets.
Unless I am actually stopping IN ABQ, I try to either
a) go through o-dark-early while all the locals are asleep
b) go through o-dark-late and hope all the locals are going to sleep (and NOT on the road!)
c) Avoid the whole mess and drop down to US60.
