LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico man is facing charges after police say he caused a multiple-vehicle crash then told an officer he was too drunk to complete field sobriety tests.


The Las Cruces Sun-News reports court documents show Gregory Trevor Jackson De Rouen was arrested April 20 after the crashes.

According to Las Cruces police, the 31-year-old De Rouen plowed his four-door Toyota van into a parked pickup truck, which then collided with another parked vehicle.

Court documents say three children were in the van at the time. No injuries were reported.

Police say De Rouen failed multiple field sobriety tests then admitted to an officer he was too drunk to pass one.

He was charged with aggravated DWI, child abuse and driving while his license was revoked.

It was unclear if he had an attorney.
