24-year-old Keyarha Noriega

Albuquerque –

On Sunday, February 11th, 2024, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers played in the Super Bowl. It is commonplace for Americans to have a party to watch the game, the halftime show, and the commercials. This year was no different for 24-year-old Keyarha Noriega of Albuquerque when she went to a party.

According to a criminal complaint, Noriega waved down an Albuquerque Police officer at a stop sign located at Mocho Place NE and Mocho Lane NE. The officer was there on an unrelated call, but stopped to see what Noriega needed. The officer immediately noticed Noriega had blood shot, watery eyes, slurred speech, and the odor of alcohol about her.

Noriega told the officer she had no idea where she was and that she had consumed multiple alcoholic drinks at a party somewhere before the party.

The complaint also states that Noriega had two of her children in the car with her, one of them was not even secured in a car seat. While she was exiting the vehicle, the officer also observed a handgun with a loaded magazine between the door and the driver’s seat. She performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was subsequently arrested. She submitted breathalyzer samples, and they registered over .16.

Noriega’s children were taken to an APD substation and CYFD was contacted.

The complaint does not indicate if Noriega’s drunken night was due to playing a drinking game whenever Taylor Swift was shown on TV, her team losing, or she was just celebrating the Chief’s comeback victory.

Noriega was ultimately charged with aggravated DWI, negligent use of a firearm, and child endangerment.
