A manager in the Office of Secure Transportation (OST) pleaded “not guilty” to a DWI charge, according to the case file from the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court on Jan. 20.
Craig A. Tucker, 49, of Tijeras was approached by Bernalillo County deputies on previous evening, after they noticed his vehicle was partially on the sidewalk of N.M. 14.
A criminal complaint states that Tucker smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot and watery eyes and his speech was blurred. Deputies found an open bottle of beer in the car and Tucker’s breath-alcohol content registered 0.15. The legal limit is 0.08.
Tucker is the assistant deputy administrator of the armed unit of the National Nuclear Security Administration, headquartered in Albuquerque. OST transports, escorts and defends shipments of nuclear weapons and special nuclear materials in the United States.
Al Stotts, a spokesman for NNSA said Tucker was removed from his management responsibility. The Department of Energy Office of Health Safety and Security is conducting a review of the incident. If Tucker is convicted, he could loss his security clearance and possible his job, Stotts said.
