A Mora County sheriff’s transport officer was found Monday driving drunk in an unmarked sheriff’s car on Interstate 25, state police said.
Ramon Montoya, 28, of Sapello, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated.
His blood-alcohol level was reported at .30, more than three times the state’s presumed level of intoxication.
Montoya, who started in July, is on unpaid leave from the Sheriff’s Department pending an internal investigation. He is an uncommissioned officer who transports inmates.
