BATON ROUGE - State Police arrested a 23-year-old woman after she allegedly called the State Police Crime Lab and tried to have evidence destroyed in a case against her.

Investigators said Jana Pourciau called the crime lab from her cell phone and posed as an employee of the 18th Judicial District Court. According to detectives, Pourciau told crime lab employees to destroy a toxicology report, where a blood sample was taken from her following a wreck on April 12. State Police said she also sent an email to the crime lab from her personal account.

Troopers arrested Pourciau on charges of DWI for the crash. Crash investigators said she lost control of her car and drove through an elementary school's fence in Point Coupee Parish near Highway 977.

Pourciau faces charges of False Personation and Forgery for her alleged call and email to the crime lab.
