Police have seized cellphones of a New Mexico sheriff accused of showing up drunk to a SWAT standoff.
The Española Police Department executed a search warrant Thursday at the Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Office for the personal and work cellphones of Sheriff James Lujan, the Santa Fe New Mexican reports.
The complaint, written by interim Española police Chief Roger Jimenez, states Lujan refused, despite commands from officers, to leave the scene. The complaint also says he smelled like alcohol and appeared to have trouble keeping his balance.
Now he's in a shit load of trouble with the court, who are trying to obtain his cellphone records.
