Driver in death of Pueblo man failed alcohol test
A prominent attorney accused in the death of a Pueblo man had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit in New Mexico, authorities in Santa Fe said.

A test following the November 26 accident showed Carlos Fierro's blood-alcohol content was 0.21 -- far above the state's limit of 0.08. "I would say that's a relatively high blood-alcohol level in comparison to most DUIs," Deputy Police Chief Aric Wheeler told The Santa Fe New Mexican. "It is a significant number."

Fierro, 36, is charged with killing William Tenorio, 46, of San Felipe Pueblo, and leaving the scene of an accident that caused death. He is a former Congressional staffer to Rep. Tom Udall (D-New Mexico) and Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona).
