Police in Louisiana say a FedEx driver transporting Marijuana and Alcohol crashes into an Home

Houma, LA: Louisiana police stated that a FedEx courier is suspected of crashing through the front of an occupied residence while under the influence.

The 31-year-old man failed a field sobriety test and is now charged with a variety of offenses, according to the Houma Police Department.

Police stated in a news release that shortly after 4:00 p.m. on March 26, the man’s FedEx delivery vehicle veered off the road and collided with the residence.

Even though the residence was occupied, police reported that no one was injured. Evidentiary support for the driver’s intoxication was a motorist in possession of an open container containing marijuana, alcohol, and an opioid painkiller, according to investigators.

Authorities claim that after the failed field sobriety test, police attempted to take him into custody but he resisted entering the patrol vehicle. According to police, he ultimately refused to submit to a breath test to determine whether or not he was under the influence at the police station.

Police informed that although investigators obtained a search warrant for the individual to submit to a blood test, the results could take several weeks to become available.

The man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, possession of alcoholic beverages in a motor vehicle, possession of marijuana, possession of a schedule IV narcotic, and resisting an officer after the blood test. He was lodged in jail on these charges.

“Safety is our utmost concern, and we express our gratitude that no one was injured,” a FedEx spokesperson said in an email to McClatchy News. “This conduct is unacceptable, and the driver is hereby terminated from performing service on behalf of FedEx.”

Approximately sixty miles to the southwest of New Orleans is Houma.
