CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A Moss Bluff man has been booked on fourth offense DWI, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said on Saturday, at about 3:30 p.m., Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash at the intersection of Belfield Drive and Waynewood Drive in Moss Bluff.

Authorities said upon arrival, the deputy discovered the truck appeared to have run off the road and into a ditch.

Authorities said when the deputy approached the truck and spoke with the driver, 28-year-old Adam C. Buller, he detected a strong odor of alcohol and slurred speech.

"After Buller performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test, he was arrested and transferred to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office where he refused to submit to a breath intoxilyzer test," the release states.

Authorities said Buller, who has had three DWI arrests since 2004, was booked with DWI fourth-offense and careless operation.

Bond in the case is set at $21,000.
