Man charged with DWI, possession of marijuana


Shreveport Police Department

A Shreveport man was arrested on several charges, including DWI and possession of marijuana, following a traffic stop Sunday.

A traffic stop was conducted on a vehicle for switched tags.

Upon contact with the driver, 40-year-old Robert Earl Scott of 316 W. 69th St., the odor of an alcoholic beverage was detected on his breath. Scott also had red, glassy eyes and slurred speech.

Field sobriety tests were conducted which confirmed impairment.

Scott was placed into custody, and officers conducted an inventory of the vehicle, where they found a 40-ounce Natural Light bottle with a bag of a vegetablelike material that tested positive for marijuana. The substance weighed 1.1 grams.

Post- Miranda, Scott admitted that it was his “weed.”

Scott was transported to traffic enforcement, where he refused additional field sobriety tests and a breath test.

Scott was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges of DWI second offense, possession of schedule I drugs and operating a vehicle while under suspension for certain prior offenses.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
