A Morgan City woman is being held in the Lafourche Parish jail on a $78,000 bond after being charged with her sixth DWI and $500,000 bond for her fourth DWI charge in Terrebonne Parish, deputies said.
Lisa Callais, 47, of 113 Andras St., also faces charges of driving under suspension and improper lane usage, the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office said.
About 11:45 a.m. Friday, patrol deputies in Thibodaux said they were flagged down by a concerned person reporting a reckless driver on St. Mary Street. Deputies observed the suspect's vehicle cross the center line multiple times and initiated a traffic stop.
Callais refused to submit to a field sobriety or a Breathalyzer test but eventually submitted to a blood test. Results are pending at the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab.
Deputies discovered Callais had been charged with five prior DWI offenses in Louisiana in the last 10 years and that her license was suspended due to previously refusing to submit to a blood test, the Sheriff's Office said.
