CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - A Lake Charles woman has been booked on DWI three times in three months, according to a news release from Louisiana State Police.
On Thursday, shortly before 6 p.m., troopers said a vehicle was stopped after a trooper spotted the driver, 32-year-old Desireah Annette Chapman, commit a traffic violation on La. 3059 in Calcasieu Parish.
Troopers said Chapman performed poorly on a standardized field sobriety test that was administered at the traffic stop.
Chapman was then placed under arrest.
Troopers said Chapman, whose driver's license is currently suspended due to a previous DWI, was charged with DWI third-offense, driving under suspension and improper lane usage. She was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.
If convicted, Chapman faces up to five-and-a-half years in prison and up to a $2,000 fine for driving under suspension and third offense DWI, according to troopers.
In late November 2012, troopers assigned to Troop D arrested Chapman for DWI with child endangerment. Troopers said Chapman had a 6-year-old child with her in the vehicle at the time of the arrest. Last month, troopers reportedly arrested Chapman for DWI second offense.
