Two men were arrested at the same location and for the same alleged crime.

El Paso County Sheriff’s Deputies said early Sunday morning they arrested Ricardo Arrellano, 23 at the intersection of Westway and North Desert in the upper valley after witnesses followed him believing he was drunk. Deputies said they found Arrellano asleep at the wheel. They said he was also allegedly involved in a hit and run earlier in the night.

At the same time, deputies also arrested Rodrigo Hernandez, 55, after Hernandez was recognized by the same witnesses to be the person seen earlier stumble out of a vehicle and then drive off.  
Deputies said Hernandez’s BAC was three times over the legal limit.
