Albuquerque - Back in December 2022, Nicholas Clinton, 36, of Albuquerque caused mass hysteria and panic amongst the general public when he showed up drunk without his child to the Gibson Center where he was staying. The Albuquerque metro public and several law enforcement officials frantically began searching everywhere for his daughter. It is alleged Clinton got separated from his daughter on or near a ABQ ride bus and he continued on the the shelter on Gibson without her. An alert bus driver was suspicious about the situation and called police to investigate. According to the criminal complaint, Nicholas was intoxicated and belligerent with officers when they began questioning him about his young daughter Oreyana being missing. He attempted to batter the officer and he was taken into custody with some use of force. https://www.abqraw.com/post/charges-filed-against-drunk-father-who-lost-his-child
