Lake Charles –
On June 3 at approximately 4:00 a.m. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a single vehicle crash in the area of Carlyss Drive and Mona Street in Sulphur.
When deputies arrived they observed a truck flipped upside down resting partially in the ditch and the roadway. When deputies spoke with the driver, Dustin D. Williams, 35, 5264 Rock Drive, Sulphur, they could smell the odor of alcoholic beverages emitting from his person. They also observed him to have slurred speech. When the deputy questioned Williams he stated he drank approximately 6 to 7 beers.
After Williams performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test he was arrested and transported to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office for breath intoxilyzer test; which he refused.
Williams, who has 2 prior DWI arrests, was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 3rd; and careless operation. He was released later the same day on a $15,500 bond set by Judge Ron Ware.
CPSO Sr. Cpl. Joshua Smith was the arresting deputy on this case.
