Moss Bluff Woman Arrested for DWI 3rd
According to a media release from Kim Myers, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a single vehicle accident on Monday, Feb. 10, at about 6 am, in a parking lot on Houston River Road in Westlake.
Upon arrival, deputies located the driver, Alyssa A. Chapman, 29, of Moss Bluff, standing outside of her SUV. They noticed the SUV had backed over a guard rail, which raised the rear tires off the ground. Chapman displayed an "unsteady balance and slurred speech". Deputies questioned if she had been drinking or using any narcotics and she told them she had taken two prescribed medications the day before. It was also learned Chapman was driving under suspension for prior DWI offenses, said Myers.
Chapman didn't do well on the standard field sobriety test and was arrested and taken to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office for a breath intoxilyzer test. She gave a breath sample, and agreed to have her blood drawn for a toxicology report. She was taken to a local hospital where they collected a blood sample, and then taken back to CPSO.
This isn't Chapman's first run in with authorities, as she's had 2 previous DWIs within the past 10 years. She was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 3rd; and driving under suspension. Her bond is set at $12,500.
