The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On September 28 around 10:00 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to the 2400 block of N. Flounder Street in Lake Charles in reference to a complaint regarding a man sleeping in a truck that was running and parked in the middle of the road.   

Upon arrival deputies found the driver of the truck, Stephen A. Snider, 29, of I-10 Mobile Village Road, Lake Charles, passed out in the driver's seat of the running truck with an open can of beer in his hand.  Deputies also discovered several opened beer cans on the floor board of the truck.

When deputies spoke with Snider, they detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from his breath, along with slurred speech.  Snider also advised the deputies that he had been drinking prior to driving. 

Snider, who is currently on probation for a 2009 DWI 3rd conviction, was arrested and booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 4th; driving under suspension for DWI; obstruction of public passageway; and possession of alcoholic beverage in motor vehicles.

Judge Michael Canaday set his bond at $41,500.

CPSO Deputy Travis Lavergne was the arresting deputy.
