Martinez Spokesman Arrested on DWI Charge

Raj Shaw, who just this month had been hired as spokesman for Susana Martinez's gubernatorial campaign, was arrested in Albuquerque yesterday on charges of aggravated drunken driving and careless driving.

Shaw, who reportedly has been fired from the campaign following the arrest, is still in jail, if Bernalillo County's Metropolitan Detention Center records, checked around 9:20 a.m., can be trusted. Shah, 25, just moved here from Connecticut.

According to the jail records, he was arrested at 12:23 a.m. Sunday near the Intersection of San Mateo and Osuna in northeast Albuquerque. The records indicate this is his first offense. His bond is $5,000.
