Shannon J. Clark was arrested for his third DWI after a crash on Highway 66 in Gallup.
According to the report, a Gallup Police Officer was called to the Third Street area near Hwy 66. When officers arrived, they began addressing the situation. While officers were conducting their investigation, paramedics were en route to the scene. The report didn’t say if Clark or the driver he hit sustained injuries in the crash but EMTs checked those involved anyway. While talking to Clark, the officer noticed enough red flags to warrant a field sobriety test.
Clark failed the test and was arrested by officers. Officers asked if he would consent to a breath test, which he did. After two breaths, his levels were clocked at 0.15 and o.14. Clark was then transported to MCDC and booked. The report didn’t mention the condition of the other driver or say if major injuries were sustained. Also, at this time, it’s unknown if the other driver involved will file a lawsuit for the damages and injuries sustained.
We thank the Gallup Police Department for getting another drunk driver off the road. Since September, police all across New Mexico have been cracking down on drunk and impaired drivers. Eliminate the risk and drive sober.
