LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -New Mexico State coach DeWayne Walker was arrested for suspected drunken driving last weekend but authorities said the charge was dismissed because his blood-alcohol level was well below the state's legal limit for presumed intoxication.
Police spokesman Dan Trujillo said the charge was thrown out Tuesday because Walker's blood-alcohol content tested at .01 after his arrest early Saturday. New Mexico's threshold for presumed intoxication is .08.
A spokesman for New Mexico State's athletic department said Walker wasn't available for immediate comment. He said the university planned to release a statement later Wednesday.
Police said Walker also was cited for driving the wrong way on a one-way street. He faces arraignment Friday on that charge in Las Cruces Magistrate Court. Walker was hired in December to replace the fired Hal Mumme.
