Drunk Driver Passes Out In The Middle of Interstate

The Times-Picayune reported that on Saturday morning, a drunk driver- Leronne Triplett- passed out behind the wheel of his car and came to a stop in the center lane of Interstate 10 in Kenner, Louisiana. A representative from the Kenner Police Department, Sgt. Brian McGregor, reported that no individuals were injured because police personnel responded right on time to the incident. Kenner and another police officer, Arthur Coll, spotted Triplett’s vehicle stopped in the center eastbound lane of I-10 as they were transporting prisoners to the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna.

It was reported that Triplett was found passed out in the front seat of the vehicle, and legal officers woke him up. McGregor stated that they were able to easily sense the alcohol odor that Triplett carried, and were able to detect that he was walking unsteady. Triplett failed the field sobriety tests that he was administered and had a blood-alcohol content level of .128%, which is above the legal limit of .08%. It was noted that he was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center and charged with one count of DWI and another one for obstruction of highway. However, he was released with a $2,000 bond.
