A recent single-vehicle wreck led Louisiana police to make an arrest. The driver accused of drunk driving did not appear to be injured in the wreck. He is facing several criminal charges, including a hit and run and weight restriction charges on top of a first offense DWI. For Lake Charles residents facing similar charges, the potential effects of a criminal conviction can be devastating.

Fans of popular Marvel Comics super heroes often idolize Stan Lee, the former editor-in-chief and creator of many popular characters.

A Louisiana man is currently behind bars for multiple criminal allegations. Among his charges is a fifth-offense drunk driving count, although it is not clear if he was ever convicted for his past arrests. Drunk driving charges are serious enough as is, but arrests for subsequent offenses can be especially difficult for Lake Charles drivers.
Louisiana treats any suspicion of intoxication behind the wheel very seriously, and those accused of such face considerable consequences. However, drivers do not necessarily have to be inside of a car, truck or SUV to be charged with drunk driving. For one man, sitting behind the wheel of a riding lawn mower was enough for charges to be filed against him.
