Albuquerque, NM (KRQE) -- An 83-year-old Albuquerque man was arrested for DWI for the 11th time last week after being found passed out in his truck.
He was then caught driving his truck the next day even though his license has been revoked since 1999.
A friend of Manuel Pacheco called deputies on July 10 saying that Pacheco had left his house driving drunk, nearly hitting a mailbox in the process.
Deputies say they later found Pacheco at a Paradise Hills park passed out in the driver's seat of his truck. The keys were still in the ignition and miniatures of vodka were in the passenger seat.
Deputies say when they tried to arrest Pacheco he complained of chest pains, so instead of being taken to jail he was taken to the hospital while his truck was towed.
When deputies went to arrest Pacheco at his house the next day they found him driving in his neighborhood in the same truck that had been towed the night before.
He was arrested on the original warrant and for driving with a revoked license.
"Obviously someone like this does not learn a lesson," Sgt. Sam White of the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department told KRQE News 13.
According to court records, Pacheco's DWI convictions date to 1985. He was arrested every couple years since then, sometimes popped twice in the same year.
In most cases his breath-alcohol level was close to two times the legal limit. In two cases it was near three times the legal limit.
A spokesman for the state Motor Vehicle Division said Pacheco's license was revoked in 1999.
Investigators say Pacheco was never ordered to have an ignition interlock on his vehicle because he wasn't suppose to be driving. Court records also show his stays in jail following his DWI arrests were pretty short.
At last check Pacheco was still in the Metropolitan Detention Center on the latest charge
