Breaux Bridge Man Arrested After Car Chase
A reckless driver leads police on a chase that ends in a ditch.
Corporal Paul Mouton with Lafayette Police says they noticed a pickup truck driving recklessly on a parking lot in the 1500 block of North University Avenue. Mouton says when they went to stop the truck, the driver took off going through neighboring streets and multiple barricades on Willow Street.
During the chase, police say the driver hit several police cars, mail boxes, a utility trailer and a building before running into a ditch in the 100 block of Martin Oaks. Mouton says the man, later identified as Clarence Boyd of Breaux Bridge, tried to get away on foot, but he didn't get too far.
Boyd has been booked for trying to get away from police, as well as a drug charge.
