Here is raw video of Senator Richard Martinez crash and DWI investigation.
A Democratic state lawmaker charged with drunken driving says he won’t resign from the New Mexico Senate even if convicted.
The Albuquerque Journal reports Sen. Richard Martinez spoke to reporters Thursday following a court hearing in Santa Fe. He says his experience will probably make him a better senator.
Martinez has pleaded not guilty to aggravated DWI and reckless driving charges following a June arrest.
Police say he slammed into the back of another vehicle in Espanola, which is part of his district.
Police lapel video showed Martinez responding to officers with slurred speech following the accident.
He refused a breath test to determine his blood-alcohol level.
Martinez is the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He says he’ll seek re-election next year.

For every 1 politician arrested, 20 get a free get out of jail card. Now that's justice!
Love that nurse! Trying to remind him of why this is such a big deal. I don't think it registered with him at all but I'm glad she spoke up
THIS IS SENATOR lol?? ONLY IN USA~~!!!
I had a couple beers means…l had 6 beers. Now l have a beer belly.
The guy is so out of it that I even doubt he knows what planet he is on. Either that or he is just a regular old stupid senator lol.
Good thing he is in an ambulance, judging by appearance , is about to birth sextuplets.
Thank you nurse for having to still serve that piece of shit professionally even though there are probably a thousand places you would rather be then
New Mexico is doomed!
How does one that size get drunk as fuck on 3 glasses of wine.
YEAH he's guilty ASF no doubt. but why do they have him semi upright in a c-collar, ROTATED!! w c spine precautions???
He has pleaded not guilty and says that even if convicted he will not resign and will seek reelection. He also claims that this experience will "probably make me a better senator".
what's that cop in the glasses have against Mercedes? "these guys were smart, bought a JEEP" hey cop, at least the man has taste. Could you afford EITHER? scoff.
what was that song on his phone? That was badass! Wish I knew the artist.
Good 4 that nurse at the end 4 speaking up & showing appreciation 4 him being held accountable! I'm a proud Democrat but this is unacceptable & I'm glad she reminded him of her loved ones being on the roads with him.
Lol, that dexterity test should be added to FST's as the first test, you've got to be wasted to fail that, would save a lot of messing about.
What a disgrace
Wow pie eyed or what 😂
I'm sorry but the officer only asked him to count backwards to 14 from 30 but he was doing the finger thing at the same time was hilarious!!😂😂
NM is a strange place when it comes to LEO's. My Dad retired there–still there, and is a vet, USMC. I visit as much as I can, and the police presence there is eerie. Seems like there is a helluva lot of 'insider' cases. My Father and I both have a CC license in NM, but you can also wear it on hip. I don't live in the States anymore, so…watching what goes on literally down the street from my Dad is awesome.
NM has some serious energies.
I had 17 beers, 6 shots, but I'm perfectly fine Officer.
