Man arrested for obstructing traffic

At about 10 p.m. Thursday evening, a Ruston police officer was informed by a motorist that a man was running into traffic swinging his hands at vehicles at the intersection of Louisiana Highway 33 and the South Service Road.

When the officer responded to the scene he found Justin Hebert, 41, of Crowley, walking on the La. 33 overpass at I-20. Hebert appeared to do a push up in the roadway before continuing to walk. As the officer approached, Hebert squatted down in front of traffic attempting to exit from Interstate 20 and began aggressively gesturing toward his groin. 

Hebert was taken into custody and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for simple obstruction of a highway. He was also issued a citation for simple possession of marijuana.
