HAMMOND - 28-year-old Thomas Lee Jernigan of Ponchatoula has been arrested on 3rd time DWI charges.

Tangipahoa Parish deputies responded to a single vehicle crash early Sunday Morning on Pleasant Ridge Rd. in Hammond.

Deputies say the vehicle was abandoned when they got there, but was registered to Jernigan.

Deputies say when they caught up with Jerningan at him home, he was obviously intoxicated and trying to report to 911 that his vehicle had been stolen.

They say Jernigan was lying about his vehicle being stolen and was driving it at the time of the crash.
