Man gets plea deal in DWI

-A A +A


Matthias A. Jaramillo, 20, of Los Alamos, was sentenced last week in magistrate court for reckless driving while under the influence of liquor and/or drugs.

In May of this year, Jaramillo was pulled over and arrested for driving through a construction zone on Trinity Drive.

 When he was stopped, police noted that his car was damaged and his windshield was shattered. They also noted his car smelled of alcohol and his shirt was inside out and put on backwards. A field sobriety test taken at the scene determined that Jaramillo was intoxicated. 

Police pulled Jaramillo over on Arroyo Lane, near Verde Ridge, shortly after his vehicle, a Silver Subaru Forester, crashed through the closed construction site at Trinity Drive and DP Road. Police tracked him down through eyewitness reports of Jaramillo’s erratic driving and the damage he was causing as he drove. 

“The reporting party was giving dispatch updated information to the vehicle’s whereabouts, and the vehicle was heading east on Trinity,” said an officer in the report. “... I was traveling west on East Road and noticed the vehicle bouncing through the construction site.”
