Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre reported the arrest of a Golden Meadow man for his 4th DWI after his truck ran out of fuel while he was trying to evade deputies. Anthony Leboeuf Jr. (W/M, D.O.B. 11/02/79) of 132 Jacob Drive was arrested Monday morning after causing a disturbance in a Larose neighborhood and then fleeing from deputies responding to the disturbance.
At around 6:30 a.m. on Monday, April 8, deputies responded to a disturbance on West 21st Street in Larose. Upon arrival, deputies found Leboeuf parked on the street and asked him to exit the vehicle. Leboeuf ignored the deputies requests and actually began driving away from the scene, nearly striking a deputy as he passed by them. The deputies then returned to their unit and activated emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to initiate a traffic stop, but Leboeuf continued along West 21st Street, eventually reaching LA Highway 1. Leboeuf turned onto West 25th Street and began traveling through various streets throughout the neighborhood near Larose Cut-Off Middle School before turning back into the southbound lane of LA 1. Leboeuf continued southbound until his truck ran out of fuel, and his truck came to a stop after he turned down West 33rd Street. Deputies then took Leboeuf into custody.
Inside Leboeufs vehicle, deputies discovered several open containers of alcohol. They also detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath. Deputies conducted a Standardized Field Sobriety Test, on which Leboeuf performed poorly. Deputies later conducted a breathalyzer test, and the results showed him to have a blood alcohol content of 0.083g%. Leboeuf also advised deputies they would lose their jobs due to him knowing a large number of people in the community.
Leboeuf was arrested and booked on several charges including DWI (4th offense), aggravated flight from an officer, disturbing the peace by appearing in an intoxicated condition, open alcohol container in a motor vehicle, no seat belt, no insurance, and public intimidation. He was released Monday evening after posting $37,200 bond as set by Judge Jerome J. Barbera III.
Leboeuf has an extensive criminal history dating back to 1998. He has 20 prior arrests for charges including various drug charges, DWI, aggravated battery, domestic abuse battery, assault, burglary, theft, and various other crimes.
