This came across the wire today as CPSO has issued a warrant for the arrest of a Lake Charles man possibly connected to a hit and run involving two dogs and narrowly missing a pedestrian who was walking the dogs.

The warrant is for Gabriel C. Sonnier, 22, of 5722 Perry Lane, Lake Charles. Detectives attempted to make contact but were unable to, as Sonnier apparently left town before they were able to speak with him. This happened on June 12th, with a warrant being issued on July 3rd by Judge Guy Bradberry.

The judge issued a warrant for Sonnier's arrest in the amount of $185,000 for hit and run driving, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, obstruction of justice, and aggravated cruelty to animals.

If there is anyone with information about Sonnier's whereabouts, please call the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office at (337) 491-3605.
