Man Arrested for 4th DWI after Deputies Found Him Sleeping in a Drive-Through Lane

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced a Cut Off man was arrested over the weekend for his fourth DWI offense. Trent Callais, 50, was arrested early Sunday morning after he was found to be sleeping in the driver's seat of a truck at a fast food restaurant drive-through lane.

At around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday, January 4, deputies responded to a fast food restaurant on East Main Street in Cut Off in reference to a man sleeping in a pickup truck in the drive-through lane. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the driver, later identified as Trent Callais, who was sleeping.

Deputies woke Callais who was showing signs of impairment, and he performed poorly on a standardized field sobriety test. Deputies also conducted a blood test, and the results are pending at the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab.

Upon reviewing Callais' criminal history, deputies discovered three prior DWI arrests, including two in 2009 and one in 2013.

Callais was arrested and transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center where he was booked with DWI (4th offense).

He is currently being held in lieu of $50,000 bond as set by Judge Steven M. Miller.
