KPLC has learned that the 35-year-old Lake Charles man in custody on a fourth-offense DWI charge was also arrested in 2009 in connection with a shooting.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Brian K. Williams Sr. was stopped for a traffic violation Tuesday night near the intersection of McKinley and Buren streets.

"When the deputy approached the car and spoke with Williams, he detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from Williams' breath," Myers said Wednesday in a news release. "Williams advised the deputy that he had been drinking."

Myers said a 4-month-old child was in the car, and Williams had an active warrant for a charge of third-offense DWI.

Williams is also facing charges of child endangerment and driving with a suspended license.

Bond is pending.

According to KPLC records, Williams was arrested in 2009 on a charge of attempted second-degree murder.

At the time of his arrest, Lake Charles Police said Williams shot his estranged wife's boyfriend.

Williams allegedly chased the victim out of a house and shot him. The victim was treated at a hospital and released.

The Calcasieu Parish District Attorney's Office said it accepted a charge of second-degree aggravated battery but not the attempted murder charge in connection with the shooting.

The DA's office said that the shooting victim was not cooperative in the investigation, so the case against Williams was dropped.
