Sharing is caring!

LAS CRUCES – A Las Cruces police officer later charged with aggravated DWI parked in the middle of an interstate driving lane when she was pulled over by a New Mexico State Police officer last month.

The incident, caught on NMSP video obtained by the Sun-News, also shows the woman’s boyfriend — who identified himself as a Las Cruces police officer  — emerging from the shrubbery on the side of the road, asking to speak to her, after she had been placed in cuffs and in the the back of a police car.

Lourdes Hernandez, 26, who’s been a police officer for just over a year, remains on administrative leave pending charges of aggravated driving while under the influence of intoxicated liquor or drugs (she refused a breathalyzer test), speeding (she was allegedly driving 73 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone) and negligent use of a deadly weapon while intoxicated (she had her loaded department issued firearm and badge in her glove compartment).
