Video: Albuquerque man tries escaping fr Duke City
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man from Albuquerque led police on a wild chase usually seen only in the films. It caught the entire incident on film.
He began trying to unlock a white truck at a hotel near Coors and Iliff when Albuquerque Police saw Armando Romero back in September. He was found to have a warrant for his arrest by police trying to help him.
They were trying to ask him about it, but he started running into oncoming Coors traffic. In a risky pursuit, Romero led the policeman. Romero managed to run into traffic and even attempted to catch his own multi-car ride. The cop pulled a semi-truck at one point to try and catch up with him.
As a driver pulled over, Romero can be seen struggling to hold a truck. He tried to jump on the back of a pickup truck once the cop spotted him.
Romero has been accused of resisting, evading, or hindering an officer. Court records show that the charges were dismissed as APD was not willing to proceed with the case. Whether they didn't want to go forward is uncertain, but perhaps the state can re-file the charges. The extensive criminal record of Romero includes charges of assault and burglar from 2007.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — This is a historic Albuquerque site, but it's mostly gone unused for years. Not only is the city trying to change it, in the future of the Albuquerque Rail Yards, Election Day will play a big part. The famous room in the center of town on Saturday had a makeover and a crowd.
"Everyone just wanted to get out there, enjoy the sunshine, enjoy the food trucks, enjoy the music," said Allison Duffus, event attendant. In celebrating the end of the 11-month campaign, Mayor Tim Keller joined other city dignitaries.
"They wanted to show that we can get things done when we have the money and the layout and help for the community," Keller said.
Some of the people who have appeared on Saturday are planning ahead, "I'm really getting married soon, so I was like ' you guys are married, right? ' So I think that's going to be great for that," Duffus said. And that will depend on building around the square, which is not expected to be completed until next summer.
Voters would also assess how much more will occur if they vote to approve a city bond of $128 million. Keller said that $5 million of that bond would go to the Rail Yard for continued improvement, and that would not be a tax increase.
