Lieutenant Hit By DWI Suspect
On October 9, 2015, Lieutenant Holguin of Sunland Park Police Department was attempting to stop a suspected DWI driver. The driver stopped in a cul-de-sac but then proceeded to drive directly at Lt. Holguin. Lt. Holguin was struck in the right hip, and his left leg was run over. The driver was found and arrested the next day. Lt. Holguin sustained some injuries to his leg but has been able to return to service.
Video footage was caught using one of our VISTA body cameras.
