At 5:09 p.m. Saturday, a New Mexico State Police uniformed officer conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Second Street in Roswell.
The officer immediately noticed signs of intoxication. The driver, Ram Molina, 45, of Roswell, agreed to a field sobriety test, during which the officer observed numerous signs of impairment indicating Molina was unable to safely operate a vehicle.
Molina was placed under arrest for DWI. He later submitted to a breath test, revealing a breath alcohol content of .28 and .29. The officer then discovered that Molina had four previous DWI arrests.
Molina was charged with DWI (fifth offense), driving on a revoked license, and failure to stop, and was booked into the Chaves County Detention Center.
