Driver charged with third DWI

A Ruston man was charged with felony DWI Friday night after he was arrested for his third offense.

Ruston Police stopped Tori C. Worrall, 41, for traffic violations on W. California Avenue about 8:00 p.m. Worrall appeared to be impaired, and a Louisiana State Police trooper was called to the scene. 

The trooper found Worrall leaning on his vehicle to keep his balance and when asked to step away from his vehicle, he stumbled. Worrall performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested and taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.

When the trooper directed Worrall to submit to a breath test, he refused to provide a proper sample. A search warrant was obtained for Worrall’s blood and a sample was taken at the Northern Louisiana Medical Center.

Records indicated Worrall was previously arrested for DWI in 2017 and in 2018.
