ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal authorities are asking a bank to withhold any property and money of a former northern New Mexico sheriff convicted in a road-rage case.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://goo.gl/KTDmtU) that U.S. Attorney’s Office in Albuquerque has asked the Los Alamos National Bank if it has any property or money that belongs to former Rio Arriba County sheriff Tommy Rodella.

If so, new court documents say the bank needs to hold that property and money to pay off Rodella’s fines and court-ordered restitution.

Rodella was sentenced in January to 10 years in federal prison for abusing a driver in a bizarre, off-duty traffic stop that prosecutors described as a fit of road rage. He also was ordered to pay a $200,000 fine and $10,335 in restitution.
