Fourth Offense DWI Charge in Louisiana

A LaPlace man named Justin Clement was booked on his fourth DWI in five months after he struck a curb and blew a tire in Metairie, Louisiana. Clement reportedly had a toddler with him in the vehicle.

Clement reportedly had blood-shot eyes, smelled of alcohol and performed poorly on a field sobriety test.  However, Clement’s blood alcohol was .064, under the .08 legal limit.  Blood and urine samples were taken since drug impairment was suspected.

Clement was booked with DWI-fourth offense, child endangerment and driving with a suspended license.

Clement has three previous DWI arrests;  first, in October in Ascension Parish and then, in November and December, both in St. John the Baptist Parish.
