A 50-year-old Vinton man was arrested for a fifth DWI.

On Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office (CPSO) deputies were dispatched to Edgerly DeQuincy Road in Vinton in reference to a truck that was swerving in and out of the lane of travel, according to Kim Myers, spokeswoman for CPSO.  When deputies arrived on the scene, they located the truck already stopped on the roadway. Deputies approached the truck and made contact with the driver, Larry G. Marcantel, Jr., who was slouched over in his seat, state Myers. While speaking with deputies Marcantel advised them he was drinking beer while driving home from Texas, added Myers.

Marcantel performed poorly on a standard field sobriety test, he was arrested and transferred to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office to take a breath intoxilyzer test; which he refused, the spokeswoman said. 

Marcantel, who is currently on probation for a fourth DWI, was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Jail and charged with a fifth DWI; and a traffic violation.  

Bond is set at $51,000.
