Man arrested for fifth DWI offense
BATON ROUGE - Officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department say a man is now facing his fifth DWI arrest.
Kendrick Moore was arrested Sunday, Dec. 29 after police saw him weaving in and out of lanes while operating a black Nissan.
After pulling Moore over in a traffic stop, police say they discovered an open bottle of whiskey in his vehicle and report that Moore told them he'd consumed four beers before getting behind the wheel.
Police say Moore was clearly intoxicated, displaying blood shot eyes and smelling strongly of alcohol.
He was arrested on DWI charges.
Earlier this year, in February, Moore was arrested following a crash that occurred while he was allegedly intoxicated.
The crash happened on South Foster Drive, near Garig Avenue, before 7 a.m.
Authorities said when they approached Moore, he had "red glassy" eyes and was wearing a wrist band that appeared to be from a local bar. Moore refused to take a field sobriety test or breathalyzer test at the scene.
This earlier situation ended with Moore's arrest on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (fourth offense), operating a vehicle while under suspension for certain prior offenses, no proof of insurance, and reckless operation of a vehicle.
