Houma, LA — On 10/5/12 at 12:30am Houma Police Officers initiated a traffic stop on a blue 1990 Ford Truck for swerving in the roadway on Grand Caillou Road near Buron Street.
The driver was identified as Gloria Dupre, 69, of Houma.
Upon contact with Ms. Dupre officers noticed she appeared to be under the influence of alcohol as she had a very strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from her breath. She refused to submit to field sobriety tests. Therefore, she was arrested for DWI and transported to the Houma Police Department.
She refused to provide a proper sample for the chemical test for intoxication telling officers she knew she would not pass the test because she is drunk.
Ms. Dupre was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and failure to drive on roadway lane for traffic. She was transported to the Terrebonne Parish Jail where she was incarcerated awaiting trial or bond.
