Police Blotter

Yesterday evening over on Av. Universidad, an incredibly drunk guy by the name of Martín Jiménez Ramos went hurtling down the road in his Volkswagen Jetta, and crashed into another car. Miraculously, no one was injured. Jiménez then decided it was a good idea to try to flee the scene on foot, only to discover he was a little too liquored up. So instead he held his ground, refusing to cooperate with the cops - even spitting on one of them - while darkly hinting that he knew "important people."

Which is probably true, since Jiménez is the mayor of the nearby town of Tolimán.

"Minutes later," Diario de Querétaro reports, "the mayor's legal representatives arrived, offering to pay for the damages and work out an agreement, so that the matter did not reach the Public Ministry." And so that was that and they all lived happily ever after, the end. Nothing to see here folks, move along.

Everybody knows someone important, I have never met a single person in my beloved country (I'm mexican) that doesn't have a friend of a friend who is really important and powerful.

Of course in this case, he is the important guy... In Tolimán, and knows the governor, may be the governor doesn't remember him, but surely they have met before.
