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

On March 3 around 9:30 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office Cpl. Joshua McCoy conducted a traffic stop on the 3000 block of E. Napoleon Street in Sulphur after noticing an SUV swerving onto the shoulder and into the opposing lane of travel several times. 

When the deputy approached the SUV and spoke with the driver, Terri R. Draper, 28, of Sulphur, he detected her speech to be very slow, slurred and incoherent.  After performing poorly on the standard field sobriety test, Draper was arrested.  The deputy also recovered a syringe containing heroin from inside the SUV.

Draper was booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with DWI 4th; and possession of CDS II (heroin).  She was convicted of DWI 3rd in 2008.

Judge Ron Ware set her bond at $32,000.

    One local fraternity made sure some families in Southwest Louisiana had a fully cooked meal to enjoy for Christmas. "We have turkeys and hams, but it's enough food in the box to feed a family of eight," said  Mark Gallashaw, president of Kappa Alpha Psi's Lake Charles Alumni Chapter. Thirty-five boxes of cooked meals are getting ready to be delivered to families across Southwest Louisiana.
