Former sheriff fighting DWI car seizure

It was a little after 9 on a Monday night when Santa Fe Police got the call.


Sylvia Solano, 21, had just driven a white BMW convertible into a brick wall in a sleepy south side neighborhood.


Solano was taken to jail, arrested after blowing a .24 on a breathalyzer. The BMW was taken to the city impound lot.


Because it was Sylvia Solano’s second DWI, the city kept the wrecked car under the city’s DWI forfeiture law and moved to seize and sell it.
