MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) -

A Ragley woman has been charged with third-offense DWI, following an investigation by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

On May 8, deputies with the CPSO responded to a single-vehicle accident at the intersection of Topsy and Vines roads in Moss Bluff. Investigators say the car appeared to have driven off of the road and into a ditch.

"When the deputy approached the car and spoke with the driver ... he detected her speech to be very slurred, and she appeared very unsteady on her feet," said Kim Myers, spokeswoman for the CPSO, in a news release.

The driver, identified as 58-year-old Cheryl A. Granger, performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test. She was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on charges of DWI 3rd and careless operation.

She was later released on a $10,000 bond set by Judge Kent Savoie.

According to authorities, Granger has two previous DWI arrests since 2011.
