Grants, NM – @CopsConsTV obtained footage of an off duty Fire department Lieutenant was involved in a car crash. When Investigating Officers went on scene they could tell the Lieutenant had been drinking and she admitted as such.
For some reason Grants Police decided it was a “conflict of interest” to do a DWI investigation since they had worked closely with the off duty Lieutenant. Grants Police tried to call in NM State Police to take over the investigation however NMSP refused and said correctly that there is no such thing as a “conflict of interest” in police work.
Grants Police still refused to make the arrest so they called in Cibola County Sheriffs Department deputies who handled the arrest. Watch as the Fire Lieutenant begs for almost three hours for Officers not to make the arrest and to just take her home. The Lieutenant was very concerned she would lose her job because of the arrest. Apparently there was no concern of losing her job a few minutes earlier as she was getting into her truck.
