3rd DWI

Gallup Police Department Officer Andrew Thayer was alerted to Henry’s alleged reckless driving by another cop while he was on the east side of Gallup. He caught up with Henry, who was driving a red sedan with no taillights.

Thayer pulled him over on the Miyamura overpass, and noticed the classic signs of intoxication – red, water eyes and slurred speech. He also reeked of alcohol. He agreed to take field sobriety tests, but failed those. He blew a .24/.25 during breath tests.

Henry, 42, was also cited for driving on a suspended/revoked license, and no tail lamps.
