In the calls, Martinez identifies herself and demands to know who complained about noise in an Eldorado Hotel room where, she says, she and others were just “eating pizza.”

Martinez says during one call, “(W)however was throwing bottles is not there, hasn’t been there for like six hours.”

It turns out another call to police was made by the front desk of the hotel itself, saying people in the room had been warned more than once and asking police to escort the allegedly unruly guests off the property.

A spokesman for the city of Santa Fe confirmed the governor made the calls but said the incident did not trigger a police report because the situation was resolved with hotel security before officers arrived at the scene, according to the report.
