LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 42-year-old Lake Charles man has been arrested on a third-offense DWI charge, authorities said.

A Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputy pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation around 11:40 p.m. Monday, near the intersection of La. 14 and 9th St. in Lake Charles, said Kim Myers, sheriff's office spokeswoman. When the deputy spoke with the driver, Kirby Alfred, he detected an odor of alcohol emitting from his breath. Alfred also had red glossy eyes and an unsteady balance. The deputy also learned that Alfred’s driver’s license had been suspended for a prior DWI charge. Alfred refused to submit to a breath intoxilyzer test after he performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test.

In addition to DWI-third, Alfred was also charged with improper lane usage, unlawful refusal to submit to chemical test and driving under suspension for prior DWI.

Myers said he was released the same day on a $19,500 bond set by Judge David Ritchie, with special conditions being that he cannot operate a vehicle without ignition interlock device and a valid driver’s license, he is not allowed to consume any alcohol and cannot commit any other crimes.
