MICHAEL PREMEAUX JR.:
Just before 1 a.m. on Thursday, August 22, patrol deputies on Tiger Drive in Thibodaux watched as the driver of a pickup truck traveling in front of them failed to stop at a red light and then accelerated at a high rate of speed causing the tires to spin in place. Deputies initiated a traffic stop and made contact with the driver who was identified as Michael Premeaux Jr. (W/M, D.O.B. 01/23/85) of 115 Hickory Lane in Thibodaux. Deputies noticed an odor of an alcoholic beverage being emitted from Premeauxs person. Premeaux admitted to drinking alcohol and then submitted to a Standardized Field Sobriety Test, on which he performed poorly. He later submitted to a breathalyzer test which indicated Premeaux had a blood alcohol content of .093g%. Premeaux was arrested and, after arriving at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center, attempted to pull away from deputies, pushing one deputy against a wall. Premeaux had to be restrained momentarily before finally completing the booking process. He was booked on charges of DWI (3rd Offense), Resisting an Officer with Force or Violence, Careless Operation, and running a red light. He was released Thursday night after posting $12,000 bond as had been set by Judge John LeBlanc.
At around 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 22, deputies responded to the 200 block of Williams Street in Raceland in reference to the business burglary. Upon arrival, deputies observed the front door to be completely removed from its hinges, and part of the door frame was also broken. Through investigation at the scene, deputies learned Keith Hogan (B/M, D.O.B. 11/18/92) of 215 Williams Street allegedly made forced entry into the café at around 1 a.m. that morning and stayed inside for more than 20 minutes before emerging with a television from the interior. Deputies made contact with Hogan, but he refused to cooperate. He was arrested and transported to the Detention Center where he was booked with Simple Burglary and Simple Criminal Damage to Property. He is being held in lieu of $30,000 bond as set by Judge LeBlanc, and he is additionally being held for Louisiana Probation and Parole.
