Ken Garcia, the city’s utilities director, has been charged in connection with a fight at a local bar.
Garcia, 44, who has an Albuquerque address, faces a felony charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Garcia has been placed on paid administrative leave, while the city looks into the matter, City Attorney Dave Romero said.
“A primary question for us is whether the incident was related to city activity or not,” Romero said.
