Artesia Man Arrested For DWI With Kids In Car

An Artesia man has been arrested for DUI while carrying three small children in his vehicle. The Daily Press reports that an officer pulled over a car for defective breake lights early on Saturday near 10th Street and Mahone Drive. Reports indicate the officer could smell alcohol when the driver rolled down the window. The driver was eventually identified as 34 year-old Robert Bueno, which the officer said was slurring his speech. The officer noted that three small children under the age of 12 were also in the vehicle. Bueno was arrested and jailed for DWI and three counts of child abuse. He’s now scheduled for an August 8th court hearing.
