A Thibodaux man faces a fourth DWI charge after Lafourche Parish authorities say he arrived to the scene of a Sunday (July 2) crash to help his friend, who had driven into a ditch and was charged with a second DWI.
John Roath, 65, was charged with his fourth-offense DWI, driving under suspension and no vehicle registration, while Larry Fontenot Jr., 55, was charged with second-offense DWI, Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre said in a news release.
About 8:45 p.m. Sunday, deputies responding to a single-vehicle crash on Erika Drive in Thibodaux learned that Fontenot had crashed his truck into a ditch.
Deputies detected the odor of alcohol on Fontenot's breath, and Fontenot admitted to having consumed alcohol prior to driving, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Fontenot performed poorly on a field sobriety test, Webre said in the statement, and a breathalyzer test showed his blood-alcohol content at .175 percent. The legal limit in Louisiana is .08 percent.
As deputies were investigating the crash, Roath drove up to the scene in a truck, telling officers that he had arrived to help Fontenot in pulling his truck out of the ditch, according to the news release.

4-timer on the left, 2-timer on the right.
I here to wescue you!
Both have Phd’s in Cajun Drinking Studies from the University of Thibodaux at Thibodaux and are regarding as the most intelligent men in all of Thibodaux.
The men are otherwise known as Boudreaux & Thibodeaux.
Maybe the sheriff’s a nice guy and will put them in a cell together.
Not fair. The 4 timer got a 10 year head start. I bet in 10 years, the youngster will be up to 4.
Boudreaux and Thibodaux were driving on the highway, on their way to go Bear hunting. They come upon this fork in the road, where there was a sign that said, “Bear Left”. They turned around and went home.
You see. This is what forces folks into driving their riding mower to the liqour store. I mean, I’m hear to tell ya.
Amateurs - my best buddy from high school had a dozen DWI tickets during the 70’s. He didn’t make it to age 50, died of a destroyed liver.
0.175. Thats not too shabby.
Yeah, That .175 will get ya some of that real quick.
Anything under .2 is amateur. The pro class drunk drivers can break .3
“Back in the 80’s, a man named Thibodaux rescued me when my Volvo (don’t ask) broke on I-10. Wouldn’t take any money.”
they are good people. At the moment, I am 40 miles from Thibodaux, and am sitting at my camp looking at the shrimp boats on the bayou.
They stole this story from Hank williams: "The Thibodeaux, The Fontenot, the place is buzzin. Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen..."
The one on the left is 38 and the one on the right is 34.
Never meanin' no harm
Beats all you never saw
Been in trouble with the law
Since the day they was born
I’m sure you could write a country song about Roath and Thibodeaux
