PECOS, N.M. (AP) — A Colorado man has been arrested for the 11th time on suspicion of driving drunk after authorities received numerous calls about an erratic driver near the northern New Mexico community of Pecos.
State police identified the driver as 56-year-old Terry Huff of Greeley. He was booked into the San Miguel County jail on charges of DWI, child abuse and reckless driving. It wasn’t clear if he had an attorney.
Police say Huff’s breath alcohol content was three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
When the officer pulled over Huff last Friday, he noticed a child standing on the seat looking out the vehicle’s windows. The officer said Huff smelled of alcohol and was mumbling incoherently.
Officers made arrangements for the child to stay with family members.
