Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents arrested a Jefferson Parish resident on May 27 for allegedly operating a boat while intoxicated on the Barataria Waterway.
Agents initially stopped Donald Guillot, 48, of Westwego, to perform a boating safety inspection. Upon contact with Guillot, the agents detected a strong alcoholic odor from his breath. After Guillot performed poorly on several standardized field sobriety tests, agents arrested him. Guillot was given the opportunity to take the Intoxilizer 5000 chemical test and submitted a breath sample with a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit of .08 percent. He was then booked into the Jefferson Parish Correction Center.
A DWI first conviction brings a fine between $300 and $1000 and imprisonment between 10 days and 6 months.
Agents participating in the investigation were Sgt. Eddie Skena and Sr. Agent Jason Russo.
