January 16, 2019

Two Santa Fe residents were arrested early Monday morning on suspicion of trespassing on private property in the Cuyamungue area and threatening Santa Fe County sheriff’s deputies who responded to the scene.

Donna Rodriguez, 44, was arrested on five counts, including aggravated DWI and criminal trespassing, according to a sheriff’s office report. Jerome Jaramillo, 25, faces four counts, including resisting an officer and battery.

Just after midnight Monday, the report says, two deputies were dispatched to Feather Road, west of the Towa Golf Course at the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino, in response to a trespassing report.

The deputies found Jaramillo trying to push a white Acura that was stuck in the snow. Rodriguez, who was driving the car, smelled of alcohol and marijuana, the deputies reported.

When Rodriguez exited the car, she fell to the ground and began screaming obscenities, the report said, adding she refused to take a field sobriety test. Eventually, the report said, she began kicking one deputy’s legs.

Jaramillo also became aggressive, the deputies said.
