The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested two drivers in Sulphur for multiple DWIs
 
On April 15 at approximately 1:30 a.m. a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy conducted a traffic stop on a truck near the intersection of Highway 90 and Prater Road in Sulphur.
When the deputy spoke with the driver, Jedediah E. Williams, 29, 6212 Highway 3059, Lake Charles, he could smell a faint odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his person. When the deputy asked Williams if he had been drinking he stated he had a few beers.
After Williams, who has three prior DWI convictions, performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test, he was arrested and transported to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office for a breath intoxilyzer test; which he refused. Deputies obtained a warrant to have his blood drawn for a toxicology report at which time he was transported to a local hospital.
 
After hospital personnel collected the blood sample he was transported back to CPSO and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 4th; and driving on a roadway laned for traffic. Judge Tony Fazzio set his bond at $45,100 with special conditions being he cannot operate a vehicle without an ignition interlock device, he must wear an alcohol detecting ankle bracelet, must not consume any alcoholic beverages, must be subject to random drug and alcohol screenings, cannot commit any other crimes, must obey set curfew; and no driving without a valid license.
 
On April 15 at approximately 5:30 p.m. a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to the intersection of Mosswood Road and South Beglis Parkway in Sulphur in reference to a van in the ditch.
When the deputy arrived he spoke with the driver, Rachel A. Worster, 47, Cochise, AZ, and observed her to have unsteady balance. While the deputy was speaking with Worster she confirmed she drank two beers prior to driving.
 
After Worster, who has two previous DWI convictions, performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test, she was arrested and transported to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office, where a breath intoxilyzer test revealed she was over the legal limit. She was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 3rd; and driving on a roadway laned for traffic. Judge Tony Fazzio set her bond at $35,100 with special conditions being she cannot operate a vehicle without an ignition interlock device, she must wear an alcohol detecting ankle bracelet, must not consume any alcoholic beverages, must be subject to random drug and alcohol screenings, cannot commit any other crimes, must obey set curfew; and no driving without a valid license.
CPSO Deputy Kerrick Gabriel, Jr., is the arresting deputy on both cases.
