THIBODAUX, LA (NBC33) — A 29-year-old man was arrested for DWI after he allegedly wrecked his car in a ditch.
The Thibodaux Police Department reports that the incident occurred on Saturday, Jan. 26 at roughly 2:30 a.m. We’re told the suspect was found passed out in his vehicle, which was crashed in a ditch on Thompson Place near Jackson Street.
