THIBODAUX, La. -- The Thibodaux Police Department arrested a Houma man Tuesday night for his fourth DWI plus five other charges, according to police.
Brady Coleman, 38, is being held at Lafourche Parish Detention Center on $156,000 bond after he forced his way into his ex-girlfriend's home, took her dog and attempted to drive away, according to police. When Coleman was arrested, he had a blood-alcohol content of .17 percent, more than twice the legal limit.
Police said Coleman was asked to leave his ex-girlfriend's house in the 500 block of St. Charles Street earlier Tuesday night because he was so intoxicated. Coleman returned to house and demanded he be let in the house.
She refused, so Coleman forced his way into her house while still highly intoxicated, according to police. Coleman helped himself to a beer and then took her dog.
Coleman tried to leave the house in his car as police arrived. Police said he got out of his car and ran to the back of the house. Officers followed him and arrested Coleman, who violently resisted.
Coleman was charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, remaining after being forbidden, three counts of resisting an officer, and his fourth DWI.
According to police, Coleman was arrested last month by the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office for DWI.
