Aggravated DWI

Gallup Police Department Officer Francis Collins said he was on regular patrol when he saw a car run a stop sign.

When he approached Watchman, 31, of Window Rock, Collins immediately noticed signs of intoxication, so when the driver admitted he had consumed alcohol before driving, Collins asked him to take a field sobriety test.

Watchman said he was taking codeine for a pain in his right knee but pointed to his left knee. He took the test and failed; he claimed he had stomach pains. He refused to take a breath alcohol test.
