BELLE CHASSE, LA (WVUE) - A man already out of jail on bond in connection with a child sex case is under arrest for an early morning hit-and-run accident in Belle Chasse.

Police believe speed and impairment are factors in the crash, which happened Monday in the 14000 block of Highway 23 near West Parker Lane.

Witnesses told police the driver of a 2014 Ford F-250, later identified as 32-year-old Timothy Vincent Lincoln IV, was speeding southbound on Highway 23 in the right lane when he rear-ended a 2013 Dodge Dart being driven by a 19-year-old Belle Chasse man. Upon impact, the vehicles lost control and drove off the roadway. Lincoln's truck struck a brick and wooden fence and a natural gas main. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage. 

Lincoln fled on foot after the crash but was found moments later walking along Highway 23. Deputies say when they tried to interview him, he pushed a deputy and ran into a nearby orange grove.

Police say they sprayed Lincoln with pepper spray during a physical altercation.

According to the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's office, Lincoln refused a chemical test for intoxication. Deputies obtained a search warrant and had blood drawn from him for testing by the Louisiana State Police Crime Laboratory.

Those results are pending. Police say the other driver was not impaired.

Lincoln was arrested and booked with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, hit and run, resisting an officer with force/violence, two counts of battery on a police officer, and a New Orleans fugitive warrant.

At the time of his arrest, police say Lincoln was free on bond for a March 2014 Plaquemines Parish arrest for sexual battery of a juvenile, felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, as well as a March 2014 Orleans Parish arrest for pornography involving juveniles and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

Lincoln remains in the custody of the Sheriff's Office at the Plaquemines Parish Detention Center.

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...

    Three turnovers against the lowly Jets can still get you a win in this league. Numerous giveaways against the Eagles, Vikings, Rams, or Panthers might not give you the same result in the standings. The Saints end the season with the Falcons and the Bucs. If they want to end the 2017 regular season campaign on a win streak, things need to be cleaned up. "Two fumbles, and at times you're going to score. I just think that's happened too many times to us this year. We're knocking a...
