Back in June, a man speeding down Ham Reid Road is alleged to have almost run over someone, but did run over that person's two dogs.

Earlier this month, a judge issued an arrest warrant on several charges for Gabirel C. Sonnier including Hit and Run.

Detectives investigating the case say the man fled the state at some point following the June incident.

Police are hoping that someone who knows where Sonnier is will call them at the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-491-3605.

Sonnier is facing the following charges:

  • Hit and Run
  • Obstruction of Justice
  • Aggravated Cruelty to Animals
  • Reckless Operation of a Motor Vehicle

The Sheriff's Office says the hit and run happened at around 8:30 the night of June 12 when the person was walking the two dogs on a leash.

Gabriel C. Sonnier's address in Lake Charles is listed as 5722 Perry Lane.
