ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – A judge has ruled that the people of Albuquerque are much better off if a repeating speed defender stays behind bars for a long time. Getting off Montgomery at 140 mph was what it took for this decision to happen.
Officer: Towing your car. Go to jail.
Driver: That’s why you can’t even afford a car like that, bitch.
Dirty words exchanged outside the Dirty Bourbon. The end of an operation Friday night for Albuquerque Police, flooding Montgomery to catch street runners and troublemakers in general.
“As he passed me on my radar and it was 140,” an officer is heard saying on a backhand video as officers swap stories about Adam Pacino and his Dodge Charger Hellcat. âYou can smell this car too. Like heat, the smell of the clutch emanates from it. He was driving this car.
Police said the 26-year-old loved to drive fast and didn’t care if he killed someone for fun. âAs soon as he started blowing out lights and turned around to walk right past us, I was like, ‘Oh no,’ said one officer.
Officers spotted Pacino doing 100 mph near Wyoming and let the helicopter follow him from above – going so fast that the Charger shines with all the heat it emits. “Brother, it was crazy. And then we disengaged. He goes up to the Tramway, comes back flying and that’s when he met the sergeant or anyone at 140”, said an officer.
After making the five-mile round trip, he pulled into Eubank’s parking lot and tried to walk away in his Playboy hoodie like nothing had happened. Then he denied having driven anything.
âThere is no proof. There’s no proof, eh? said Pacino.
“Except for the $ 6 million helicopter above,” the officer replies.
âThat’s right. And then there was no face, eh?â Said Pacino.
It’s worse, much worse. Police said he reeked of alcohol and had a loaded gun in the car.
A car he couldn’t help but brag about. âYeah, look at that car. It’s a $ 100,000 car, âPacino said.
He was charged with aggravated DWI, reckless driving for the hunt. He was also charged with careless use of a firearm because he was driving with her while intoxicated. He was previously arrested for racing, speeding, signaling a stop and methamphetamine.
