Officer who crashed into LSU Lakes resigns
BATON ROUGE - The police officer who drove a department cruiser into the LSU Lakes resigned Tuesday, according to Baton Rouge Police.
A department spokesperson confirmed the resignation of Byron Boudreaux to News 2.
Boudreaux was on leave during an investigation into his actions on Sept. 11, when the wreck happened. A woman who spoke exclusively to News 2 said he had picked her up at a bar and gave her a ride in the front of his cruiser.
"I thought I was going to die," said the woman, who asked she be identified as 'Betty Sue'. "He was driving really really fast... We almost hit another car, and then he was speeding, lost control around a turn and slid off. Right when he slid off that's when the car flipped this way."
The woman also told News 2 Boudreaux had a beer while at the bar he picked her up at. A BRPD spokesperson would not say if Boudreaux was given a breath test or blood test after the wreck.
