Video: Man in nightgown shoots NM speed-enforcement vehicle

Man steps out of an Audi and fires rounds at a parked cruiser meant to deter speeders


SANTA FE, N.M. — Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a man who they said fired at a traffic device aimed to slow down speeders. Santa Fe police said a video caught a man stepping out of an Audi car and firing off a few rounds at a police speed SUV on Bishop's Lodge Road.

"We didn't expect to see a man in a nightshirt, who appears to be barefoot, just firing rounds at the vehicle," said Santa Fe Police Capt. Aric Wheeler. Police said the man is in big trouble because the damage from the shooting amounts to well over $1,000, and the Bishop's Lodge Road is a busy area.

"It's a residential neighborhood. Those rounds could have ricocheted, gone through the plates of glass," Wheeler said. Police said the man could face at least one felony charge.
