Town Vows to Fire Employees Arrested for New Mexico DWI

The city manager of Farmington, New Mexico has announced that city employees convicted of driving while intoxicated will be fired. In an email sent to employees, Rob Mayes said the number of arrests for New Mexico DWI among city workers was inexcusable. Any worker found guilty of drunk driving would be terminated regardless of whether they were on the job or off-duty.

Mayes plans to issue a detailed policy that may include forced, unpaid leave for employees accused of DWI until their criminal case is resolved. Over the past 16 months, a city inspector, three police officers and five firefighters employed by the city of Farmington have been arrested for suspicion of NM DWI.
