St. Mary Parish deputies say a Patterson man is facing several charges after a deputy found his car, with the engine still running,  in a ditch on Highway 182 early Sunday morning.

Deputies says 41-year-old Tyrone Moore was found about a mile away from his car and asking for medical attention.

Moore was taken to Teche Regional Medical Center for treatment.

After the deputy completed his investigation at the crash site, he went to the hospital to talk with Moore.

Medical personnel told the deputy, Moore refused treatment, and he left.

The deputy found Moore at his home, and he took him the parish jail for booking.

During his booking process, a deputy says Moore threatened to hit a jailer.

He was charged with:

  • Hit and run driving
  • Careless operation of a motor vehicle
  • Simple assault
