Lafayette ‘Hit And Run’ Driver Arrested
Today 28 year old Dustin Wayne Lasseter was arrested by deputies from the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's deputies in connection with a 'hit and run' incident. The accident took place on October 11, 2014 when a white pickup truck ran into a home on West Congress street, backed up and fled.
Deputies collected vehicle parts that suggested the suspect vehicle was a white, late model Dodge truck. On Monday October 20th the deputy investigating the case spotted a truck matching the description of the suspect vehicle being transported on a trailer. The deputy conducted a traffic stop and confirmed that the damages matched the missing parts recovered at the accident scene. The truck was being shipped to Houston for repairs. Dustin Lasseter was determined to be the owner of the truck and he was booked on charges of 'hit and run' and reckless operation.
