Motorist passed out in roadway arrested

A Monroe man passed out behind the wheel of his car on a Lincoln Parish road was arrested Friday on numerous traffic charges.

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to Crocker Road Friday afternoon regarding a 911 call of a man passed out in his vehicle. Deputies found Jeremy Guilliams, 45, passed out in the driver’s seat of a Toyota Camry in the roadway. The engine was running with the transmission in drive, but Guilliams appeared to be asleep.

Once he was awakened, Guilliams displayed behavior that led deputies to conclude he was under the influence of narcotics. He admitted to deputies he had been smoking marijuana and ‘mojo’ during the day.

A small amount of marijuana or synthetic marijuana was found in the car. It was determined that Guilliams’s driver’s license was suspended.

Guilliams was arrested and booked for obstruction of a roadway, reckless operation of a vehicle, driving under suspension, and driving while smoking marijuana.
