ERIC SCOTT RADIO | LAKE CHARLES, LA. — On November 17 at approximately 2:00 a.m., a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy conducted a stop on a truck at the intersection of Bee Tree Street and Sampson Street in Westlake for a traffic violation. While pulling into a nearby parking lot after the deputy activated his unit’s lights and sirens, the driver of the truck struck a curb.

When the deputy approached the truck and spoke with the driver, Richard H. LeDoux, Jr., 43, 821 Bee Tree Street, Westlake, he detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from his breath, along with slurred speech. LeDoux also advised the deputy that he had been drinking at a local bar prior to driving.

After LeDoux performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test, he was arrested and transferred to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office, where a breath intoxilizer test revealed he was over the legal limit.

LeDoux, who has three prior DWI arrests since 2008, was booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 4th.

Judge Michael Canaday set his bond at $40,150.
CPSO Sr. Cpl. Bryan Guth and Deputy Brandon Jean were the arresting deputies on this case.
