Video shows DWI arrest after head-on crash

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – He racked up drunk driving charges in Colorado, got out of jail and then got busted for DWI here in New Mexico. The suspect with a warrant out of Colorado is facing a DWI charge out of Santa Fe after deputies said he drove the wrong way, causing a head-on crash that sent a couple to the hospital. Randolfo Antillon-Quezada kneeled in the middle of the frontage road last week after ditching his truck and either jumping or falling over the wall from Highway 84/285 near Buffalo Thunder Casino. “You were going the wrong way. How much have you had to drink today?” a deputy asked Antillon-Quezada. While the first Santa Fe County deputy on scene questioned the suspected drunk driver, witnesses alerted him that others were hurt. “We also have two more people trapped inside another vehicle on the onramp,” a deputy said over the radio to other responding deputies. Antillon-Quezada is accused of driving south on a northbound off-ramp, crashing right into oncoming traffic. “This car was coming straight at us. We couldn’t avoid going around him or anything. He just came straight at us,” one of the victims told deputies. The crash sent a woman and a man in an SUV to the hospital after they explained what happened. “He came straight at us and hit us and then he took off.” The suspect told deputies he had six Bud Light beers at the casino before he tried to drive home to Chimayo. “He was drinking there. He felt a little bit buzzed but everything was fine,” a deputy said, translating as Antillon-Quezada spoke in Spanish. Deputies arrested him for reckless driving and aggravated DWI. However, court records show that got the attention of Colorado authorities, who said he has three charges of driving under the influence there, and violated the terms of his release. Now, he’s scheduled to return to Colorado to face a judge after this dangerous encounter. “You just crashed your truck. You just ran into people going the wrong way,” a deputy said. Deputies also cited him for not having insurance. One of the victims thought he had broken bones and the other was in pain, but both are expected to be okay.

Los Alamos native and family lose home in Hurricane Irma

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Hurricane Irma hit the U.S. Virgin Islands as a Category Five storm and leveled almost everything in its path, including a Los Alamos native’s home. “Their house sustained a lot of damage. Her little girl’s room is completely gone. Her little boy’s room has a huge gaping hole in one of the walls,” said Christina Sullivan, a longtime friend of the Jamarillos. Dejah Jamarillo, her husband, two kids and a newborn live on St. Thomas. Jamarillo left New Mexico to serve in the military as a paratrooper in 2005. “Just the fact that she’s got two small children and a new born, it was just awful knowing she was going through it,” said Amanda Tyler, a childhood friend of Jamarillo’s. Tyler started a GoFundMe for the family, to help them rebuild or move on. Right now, the family is seeking shelter in Puerto Rico because their home is no longer safe. “They had to leave the house because the black mold has already started to grow so quickly,” said Sullivan. Sullivan also said there’s a significant increase in crime and looting, and the family did not feel safe. If you would like to donate to the GoFundMe, click here.

Kris Bryant Homers As Cubs Beat Mets 8-3

CHICAGO (AP) — Kris Bryant hit a three-run homer, Jose Quintana pitched seven effective innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 8-3 on Tuesday night for a sorely needed victory. Quintana (10-11) also helped himself at the plate with a pair of sacrifices, including a perfectly placed safety squeeze that drove in Kyle Schwarber in the fourth. Quintana got another bunt down in the sixth, sending Javier Baez to third ahead of Ben Zobrist’s RBI single. Chicago had lost three in a row and six of eight, making for a crowded race at the top of the NL Central. St. Louis and Milwaukee also won Tuesday night, so the Cubs remained two games ahead of the Cardinals and 2 1/2 games better than the third-place Brewers. (© 2017 by STATS LLC and Associated Press.

Alameda Point Neighborhood Urged Not To Drink Water From Faucets

ALAMEDA POINT (CBS SF) — “Do not drink water from faucets,” the East Bay Municipal Utility District told people in Alameda Point on Tuesday evening. The water quality alert was issued at 7 p.m. for people in the Alameda Point neighborhood. “Do not use tap water for brushing teeth, washing dishes, cooking or pets,” the utility district is advising. Only people in the Alameda Point area, not the entirety or the island of Alameda, are being urged not to drink or use the water. The utility district said that evidence has been found of non-drinkable and non-usable water in the Alameda Point drinking water system. It is “due to the nature of the Navy infrastructure at the former Base,” the utility district said. The Naval Air Station Alameda was constructed in the late 1930s and remained in operation until 1997, according to the Alameda Naval Air Museum. The alert will last at least 48 hours or until the city alerts residents that the water is okay to drink or use.  The East Bay Municipal Utility District said it is working to identify and resolve the problem and said crews are flushing the distribution system in an effort to restore water quality. People in the Alameda Point neighborhood can pick up bottled water 24 hours a day at the Alameda Point Collaborative office at 677 W. Ranger Avenue, Alameda. The utility district said they expect to have further information within 48 hours and will update the public as soon as they have more information.

(CBS) — The family of an Elgin grandfather killed in a freak accident in Ohio is asking the public for help. Jim Putman, 72, was driving with two others down an Ohio interstate on Sept. 4 when, police say, a piece of fencing fell off a truck and through Putman’s windshield. Putman suffered severe brain trauma and died this past Sunday. The other passengers were not seriously injured. Now, investigators and the family hope someone may have captured the incident on camera and will come forward. “We just would like to know what happened,” Putman’s son, J.R., tells CBS 2. If someone made a mistake, the family just wants to know they’re sorry, he added. Putman, a widower, is survived by two sons, six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
