BELLE ROSE, LA (WVUE) - Lafourche Parish deputies arrested Donald Bolden, 37, of Belle Rose, for his fifth DWI offense. Just after 6 p.m. on Sunday, deputies conducted a traffic stop along LA Highway 309 in Thibodaux.

Deputies identified the driver as Bolden and detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on Bolden's breath. Bolden admitted to consuming liquor prior to driving.

He performed poorly on a field sobriety test, and a breathalyzer test showed him to have a blood alcohol level of .087g%.

Bolden's criminal history showed he was on probation from his fourth DWI offense in 2014.

He was also found to have a suspended license with a hardship exception, but he was found to be in violation of that exception.

Bolden was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux.

He was charged with DWI, speeding, driving under suspension, and no ignition interlock device. He was also charged with misusing his hardship license.
