Sulphur woman arrested in reference to hit & run

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

On December 20, at approximately 1:00 a.m., the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office responded to Carlyss Drive in Sulphur in reference to a hit and run involving a pedestrian. 

When deputies arrived and spoke with the pedestrian, he advised he was walking northbound in the 3900 block of Carlyss Drive when he was struck by a car.  The victim, who suffered multiple injuries, including two broken legs, skull fracture, broken pelvis, and broken wrist as a result of the hit and run, was transported to a local hospital for treatment.  The victim was subsequently transferred to a Baton Rouge hospital for treatment and is currently listed in critical condition.

Further investigation identified the driver as Sharanda K. Arabie, 40, of Sulphur.  Deputies arrived at Arabie's home and discovered marks on the hood, bumper and undercarriage of her car which were consistent with someone being hit by a vehicle.  After performing poorly on the standard field sobriety test conducted by deputies, Arabie was arrested and booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 2nd; driving under suspension; hit and run; and vehicular negligent injuring.

Judge Kent Savoie set his bond at $8,000.

CPSO Sr. Cpl. Chris Ramos is the lead investigator and was assisted by Cpl. Eric Sullivan and Cpl. James Reed.
