Earlier in December, the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested one Michelle Williams, 55, after receiving independent calls about her erratic driving.

The first call the Sheriff’s Office received was a complainant who stated, “that the driver of the vehicle drove through his yard and struck his ATV and caused property damage to the ATV,” according to the booking report. 

Not having to look very far, the office received yet another call about a vehicle in a ditch. According to the booking report, the deputy stated, “I located that vehicle at HWY 163 in a ditch on the private driveway. I located Williams in the seat passed out.”

Williams was removed from the vehicle and had EMS do a checkup. She was asked to participate in a field sobriety test, “which she could not complete due to her impairment level,” according to the report.

The deputy located an Evan Williams bottle and a wine cooler in her vehicle in plain sight, and she was positively identified as by the complainant.

Williams was placed under arrest and transported to the WPSO, where she submitted an intox sample of .247 G%. She was then booked into the BDCC on the charges of driving while intoxicated, hit and run, possession of alcohol in a motor vehicle, simple criminal damage to property, and criminal trespassing.
