Wrong lane driver arrested

SIBLEY — Driving in the wrong lane landed a Heflin man behind bars on multiple charges.

Deputy John Byrd was traveling south on La. Hwy. 371 when a car, driven by Cedric Taylor, was traveling north in the southbound lane, according to reports.

During the traffic stop, Byrd discovered that Taylor had an active warrant for driving under suspension and placed him under arrest.

While being handcuffed, Taylor reportedly told Byrd he was going to call the sheriff and have Byrd fired or arrested.

Taylor’s 10-month-old child and its mother were in the car during the arrest.

While waiting on a wrecker, a bag of suspected synthetic marijuana was reportedly found in the center console.

Taylor, 29, of the 500 block of Art Camp Road, was arrested and charged with driving under suspension, careless operation, public intimidation of an officer, improper lane use, possession of schedule I in the presence of a minor and on a warrant for driving under suspension. He was booked into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
