SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - A Lake Charles man has been arrested on fourth-offense DWI and drug-related charges, following a traffic stop by deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office on Sunday.

The traffic stop took place at about 5:45 p.m. near the intersection of Patton St. and Beglis Pkwy in Sulphur.

Upon making contact with the driver, identified as 54-year-old David Self, deputies detected the strong odor of alcohol on his breath. Deputies also located an open container of alcohol within the vehicle, along with two Soma pills for which Self did not have a prescription.

Self was given a standard field sobriety test, on which her performed poorly. He refused to submit to a breath intoxilyzer test.

According to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, Self was arrested on charges of fourth-offense DWI, possession of an alcoholic beverage in a motor vehicle, possession of CDS Schedule III and a traffic citation.

Self was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center, with his bond set at $40,350 by Judge Kent Savoie.
