MONROE, La. (AP) - A driver who had an anti-drunk-driving interlock device in his car has been arrested again for drunk driving.
It wasn't clear how the West Monroe man managed to start his car with the device, which had been activated, in his vehicle. The device is designed to keep a driver from starting the car without
giving a breath sample free of alcohol.
State police say the man was stopped early Tuesday in the Monroe area after making a quick turn on an Interstate 20 ramp without his lights on. He was booked for second-offense DWI, although he actually has four drunk driving arrests.
The anti-drunk-driving device had been scheduled to be removed from his car on Jan. 9.
