ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO — A Roswell police officer who is the daughter-in-law of Chaves County Sheriff Rob Coon is facing drunken driving charges.
Stephanie Coon was arrested early Friday morning after authorities say she hit a car in Roswell. Police say when they looked in the car, they found an open liquor container.
According to the police report, Coon refused a breath test and has been charged with aggravated DWI. She has been placed on administrative leave.
Coon is the wife of former Roswell Officer Justin Coon, who was sentenced to five years of probation for using stolen IDs to obtain drugs commonly used to make meth. He was eventually fired.
It was unclear if Stephanie Coon had an attorney.
