One arrested for DWI, flight from an officer

tmooreA south Webster Parish man is nursing his injuries at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center after allegedly running from the law and wrecking a stolen vehicle.

Tracey Darnell Moore, 41, of the 100 block of Oscar Moore Road, was arrested for driving while intoxicated (first offense), reckless operation of a motor vehicle, flight from an officer, driving under suspension, two counts of fugitive from Claiborne Parish Sheriff's Office and illegal possession of stolen things.

According to reports by Webster Parish Sheriff's deputies and Louisiana State Police, Moore, who was driving a 2011 Chevrolet XAD 130 Saturday night, was stopped on Tillman Church Road by Dep. Bobby Igo III and Dep. Joe Morgan.

When the deputies exited their patrol units, Moore reportedly fled south on Burson Road at a very high rate of speed.

"The subject failed to negotiate a right curve near the intersection with N. Main Street in Heflin," LSP-G Trooper Shawn Driggers wrote in his report. "The subject's vehicle struck a curve sign, continued through a grass field where it impacted a pine tree and overturned."

When officers arrived at the scene, Moore was reportedly exiting the vehicle through a damaged sunroof. There were no other occupants in the vehicle. Moore was transported to Minden Medical Center where he was treated and released. Once at BDCC, Moore reportedly agreed to a breathalyzer test, with a result of .114g percent blood alcohol content approximately three and a half hours after the crash.

WPSO reports showed a call about one hour after the crash from a female subject reporting the theft of her vehicle. Deputies reportedly told her the vehicle had been involved in an accident. In the report, the victim said she did not know who took her vehicle but she wished to press charges.
