GALLIANO, LA (WVUE) -

Lafourche Parish deputies said they arrested a man Friday for this third DWI.

They said Easton Serigny, 50, of Cut Off, was arrested around 3:45 a.m. after deputies were dispatched to a Galliano truck stop in reference to a man sleeping inside his vehicle parked in the middle of the truck stop entrance.

Deputies said upon arrival, they noticed the man was sleeping with his foot on the accelerator and knocked on the driver’s door to get his attention. After a few moments, the man awoke and opened the door.

Deputies said they identified the man as Serigny, and he admitted to consuming alcoholic beverages prior to driving the vehicle. Deputies initiated a field sobriety test on which Serigny performed poorly.

Deputies said a breathalyzer test showed Serigny to have a blood alcohol content of 0.132.

Serigny was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux and charged with DWI (third offense). He was released Friday evening after posting $5,000 bond.
