Hit And Run Driver Charged With 7th DWI
When is this going to end? When are we going to start holding the judicial system responsible for the actions of multiple DWI offenders? I would imagine Louisiana State Troopers are getting pretty tired of it too.
Sunday Troopers in Lake Charles were called to the scene of a hit and run incident at approximately 4:00 AM. According to the report from State Police, a parked car was struck by another vehicle on U.S. Highway 90 near Goodman Lane in Lake Charles.
The impact on that parked vehicle was so severe it caused the parked vehicle to crash into a second parked vehicle. The driver who caused the carnage drove away. However, he didn't get far.
State Police found the vehicle that caused the crash about a half of a mile from the accident scene. The vehicle had become disabled. Troopers also found 43-year-old Eric Grisham of Lake Charles. He had an open beer and showed obvious signs of impairment.
Grisham refused a request to take a breathalyzer test. Troopers then asked for and were granted a "no refusal warrant" and a blood sample was taken for toxicology analysis. Troopers also discovered that Grisham had six prior DWI arrests since 2013 and he was driving on a suspended license.
He was taken to the Calcasieu Correctional Center and booked. His bond was set at $108,000.
