SLIDELL - A Slidell man is behind bars after he rewired his ignition, dismantled his interlock device, and drove his vehicle while intoxicated according to police.

Slidell police said they pulled over 41-year-old Larry Paul at 2:00 a.m. on Saturday morning after Paul was noticed driving erratically. Officers said Paul failed his field sobriety test, blowing a 0.152 which is twice the legal limit.

Investigators said Paul had been arrested twice for DWI in 2011 and again in 2012, and an interlock was installed on his vehicle's ignition after the second DWI. Officers said they found Paul had dismantled the device and rewired his vehicle's ignition.

Paul was placed under arrest and charged with third offense DWI, failure to yield, tampering with an interlock device, and driving without insurance.
