On April 13, 2014, at approximately 5:45 a.m., a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s deputy conducted a stop on a truck near the intersection of N. Cities Service Highway and Maplewood Drive in Sulphur for a traffic violation.

When the deputy approached the truck and spoke with the driver, Joseph F. Morris, 32, 303 E. Lyons Street, Sulphur, he detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from his breath, along with slurred speech and he appeared very unsteady on his feet. Morris advised the deputy that he had been drinking prior to driving.

After Morris performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test, he was arrested and transferred to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office, where a breath intoxilyzer test revealed he was over the legal limit.

Morris, who has three prior DWI arrests since 2008, was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 4th and released on a $10,000 bond set by Judge Richard Wilson.

CPSO Cpl. Dennis Pippin was the arresting deputy on this case.
