Man Arrested For 4Th Dwi After His Truck Runs Out Of Fuel

Anthony LeBouef, Jr.

A Golden Meadow man was arrested and charged with his 4th DWI after his truck ran out of fuel while he was trying to evade deputies. Anthony LeBoeuf, Jr., 32, of 132 Jacob Drive, was arrested Monday morning after causing a disturbance in a Larose neighborhood and then fleeing from deputies responding to the disturbance.

At around 6:30 a.m. on Monday, April 8, deputies were called to a disturbance on West 21st Street in Larose where they found LeBoeuf parked on the street. After being asked him to exit the vehicle, LeBoeuf ignored the deputies’ requests and actually began driving away from the scene, nearly striking a deputy as he passed by them.

Even after deputies tried to stop LeBoeuf he continued along West 21st Street, eventually reaching LA Hwy. 1.

He then turned onto West 25th Street and began traveling through various streets throughout the neighborhood near Larose Cut-Off Middle School before turning back into the southbound lane of LA 1. He continued southbound until his truck ran out of fuel. Deputies then took LeBoeuf into custody.

Inside his vehicle, deputies discovered several open containers of alcohol. They also detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. He performed poorly on the field sobriety test and breathalyzer test, with the results showing him to have a blood alcohol content of 0.083g%.

LeBoeuf also advised deputies that they would lose their jobs due to him knowing a large number of people in the community.

He was arrested and booked on several charges including DWI (4th offense), aggravated flight from an officer, disturbing the peace by appearing in an intoxicated condition, open alcohol container in a motor vehicle, no seat belt, no insurance, and public intimidation. He was released Monday evening after posting $37,200 bond as set by Judge Jerome J. Barbera III.

LeBoeuf has an extensive criminal history dating back to 1998. He has 20 prior arrests for charges including various drug charges, DWI, aggravated battery, domestic abuse battery, assault, burglary, theft, and various other crimes.
