A 32-year-old Lake Charles woman has been charged with three DWIs in less than three months, state police said.
Sgt. James Anderson said Desireah Annette Chapman was arrested Thursday night after being pulled over while on La. 3059.
Anderson said Chapman, whose driver’s license is suspended due to a previous DWI, was charged with third-offense DWI, driving under suspension and improper lane usage.
Chapman faces up to 5 1/2 years in prison and up to a $2,000 fine for driving under suspension and third-offense DWI.
Anderson said Troop D arrested Chapman for DWI with child endangerment in November 2012.
"She had a 6-year-old child with her in the vehicle at the time of the arrest," Anderson said. "Last month, troopers arrested Chapman for second-offense DWI.
"In 2011, 50 percent of people who died in crashes investigated by Troop D were killed by impaired drivers. To report impaired drivers, motorists are encouraged to dial *LSP (*577) from their cellular phone or to contact their local law enforcement agency."
