DENHAM SPRINGS - State police arrested an accused meth manufacturer after an off-duty sheriff's deputy spotted him driving recklessly through traffic in the Watson area.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office deputy said he pulled David Poole, 47, over after he saw him pass cars in no-passing zones and run several red lights at intersections around 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

A trooper who was in the area responded to the scene and was informed by the deputy that Poole appeared to be under the influence of narcotics.

Poole provided a suspended license and was arrested for DWI after he refused to perform a sobriety test, according to LSP.

State police searched the man's car and found two bags of suspected methamphetamine along with several items of drug paraphernalia.

Poole was booked into Livingston Parish Jail on charges of 3rd offense DWI, driving with a suspended license and multiple traffic violations. He also faces charges for the manufacture, use and sale of meth.
