ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Police caught a repeat drunk driver thanks to the power of social media.
Dispatch was alerted to a crash on the Valley High School campus Saturday because of several social media posts.
A car had run through some landscaping and into a fence. When officers got there, they found 35-year-old Pete Perez unconscious behind the wheel.
The officer says he was unable to awake Perez so he was transported to the hospital.
Officers found a nearly empty bottle of Fireball in the car. They also found Perez had five prior DWI convictions.
He’s now facing his sixth and a charge of reckless driving.
