HAMMOND, LA – A Hammond man has been sentenced after receiving his fourth DWI offense.
Joshua McCraine, 29, has already been arrested twice this year for drunk driving. He pleaded no contest to two counts of driving while intoxicated for a January 14th arrest.
Police found McCraine asleep in the driver’s seat of his truck at a Hammond gas station with the engine running on the night of the incident. According to the police report, McCraine told a deputy that he had too much to drink and parked his truck because he couldn’t drive.
McCraine blew a .158 blood alcohol percent on a breathalyzer test, which is nearly twice the legal limit of alcohol consumption in Louisiana permissible to operate a motor vehicle.
On February 14th, McCraine was arrested for DWI again after being stopped by police for a broken tail light. This time his blood alcohol content was .212 percent, nearly three times the legal limit of .08 percent.
McCraine was arrested for drunk driving in 2002 in Livingston Parish, in 2009 in Tangipahoa, and 2012 in St. Tammany.
