Same trooper arrests driver for 7th offense DWI
CLINTON- A 30-year-old man faces his seventh DWI charge after a Louisiana State Police trooper arrested him, again.
James Earl Haynes, Jr. was booked Monday night into the East Feliciana Parish Jail. Details of the arrest were released late Tuesday.
The trooper who detained him had previously stopped and arrested him on two other occasions; in June 2011 and just nine days prior to the most recent arrest, on March 8.
In both arrests this month, authorities said Haynes had been speeding in an SUV on Highway 67 near Clinton prior to being pulled over. Once he was stopped, he was presumed to be under the influence and arrested.
For Monday night's arrest, Haynes faces seventh offense DWI, unlawful refusal to submit to chemical tests, and operating a vehicle while under suspension for certain prior offenses.
