Suspect fakes illness to avoid jail

Updated:

HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish authorities say a Houma man who faked a medical emergency Friday to avoid being taken to jail was foiled Monday when he tried it again.

He was taken into custody Friday after drivers reported him speeding and swerving through traffic. A Terrebonne Sheriff's Office report says he told deputies who were taking him to jail that he was having a heart attack. But, he left a hospital emergency room without being released.

On Monday, deputies responded to a disturbance at the man's residence. He again claimed illness but he again refused treatment at a hospital. The Courier reports that this time, deputies stood by to take him to the Terrebonne jail.

51-year-old Charles Thomas Kreyenbuhl was booked on charges including reckless operation and DWI.
