Woman charged with DWI and unrestrained infant 

Ruston Police arrested a local woman for her second DWI and other traffic charges Thursday morning.

About 9:30 a.m. Thursday, a Ruston store clerk reported a woman came into the store who appeared too impaired to drive. The clerk provided a description of the vehicle and direction of travel.

An officer spotted the vehicle on South Farmerville Street turning onto Cinnamon Lane. It was stopped and the officer detected the odor of alcoholic beverages on the driver. Janeicia Adams, 24, admitted to drinking prior to driving. She performed poorly on field sobriety tests.

A one-year-old child was found unrestrained in the back seat.

Adams was arrested and taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center where a breath test was administered. Her blood alcohol content was reportedly 0.217g%, over three times the legal limit for drivers in Louisiana.

A records check showed Adams had a previous DWI in 2017 and had never been issued a driver’s license. She was booked for second offense DWI, no driver’s license, excessive window tint, and no child restraint. Lincoln Parish Probation placed a hold on Adams for probation violation on a prior domestic abuse battery charge.
