Paramedics help take impaired driver off the road

BY CHRIS REDFORD redford@theinquisitor.com

Two paramedics with the Shreveport Fire Department are being credited for taking an impaired driver off the roads January 26.

Police said the medics were traveling down Youree Drive Saturday afternoon when they saw a woman smoking marijuana while driving an SUV.

"She was nodding in and out of consciousness and almost hit our ambulance and two other cars," said one of the paramedics.

Investigators said the paramedics carefully followed the driver into a parking lot in the 7000 block of Youree and called police.

When officers arrived, they took Jessica Love, 23, and her passenger, Hunter Ivy, into custody.

Love acted confused and kept asking offices why she was arrested. She also wanted to know why someone took her picture. Ivy said very little.

Both Love and Ivy face charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and having prescription medication without a prescription.

Police said they found hydro marijuana, a pipe and several syringes inside the SUV.

Authorities said the paramedics' quick actions kept no telling how many people from getting injured.

Initially, his law enforcement background will be questioned by many rank and file at the Shreveport Police Department (SPD). Reportedly, his service as public information officer and then head of the SPD Crime Stoppers program did not entail any supervisory or investigative activities.

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.
