Monica Youngblood, a Republican from Albuquerque, was arrested in May on suspicion of aggravated DWI during a checkpoint stop.

Police video of the stop shows she complied with a field sobriety test but refused a blood-alcohol test. After an officer tells her he can smell alcohol, she responds by saying she hasn't consumed any since the day before.

She also mentions she is a lawmaker who advocates for police, saying "I fight for you guys every time I get the chance. Seriously."

Youngblood will be sentenced October 3.
