SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Here’s the latest about Gov. Susana Martinez’s involvement in a noise complaint during a holiday party (all times local):
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says she was holding her annual staff holiday party at a downtown Santa Fe hotel when a noise complaint resulted in police responding to one of her staffer’s rooms.

Spokesman Chris Sanchez says unbeknownst to the governor, there had been complaints about noise and someone throwing what turned out to be snowballs from the balcony of that room earlier in the night.
In police dispatch tapes, the governor can be heard saying there was no need to send officers to the hotel. She also demanded to know who lodged the complaint.
Sanchez says the governor regrets the way she and her staff handled the situation.
