Previously-Deported Illegal Arrested for Second DWI After Crashing Into Police Vehicle
A twice-deported illegal alien living in Louisiana has been arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated after allegedly crashing his car into a State Police vehicle early Saturday morning.
“State Troopers have arrested an illegal immigrant for second offense DWI among other charges after driving into the back of a Louisiana State Police vehicle in an active work zone,” according to KLPC.
Melgar Cardona allegedly crashed into a State Trooper’s vehicle while the Trooper was working a traffic detail. The Trooper’s vehicle was parked on the shoulder of the highway. Both suffered minor injuries.
“During the investigation the suspect was uncooperative and provided Troopers with fake names and fake ID but Troopers were able to determine his actual identity,” the report said.
Cardona was charged with multiple crimes, including DWI second offense, careless operation of a motor vehicle, not having a driver’s license, operating a motor vehicle without lawful presence in the United States, possession of fraudulent document for identification purposes, and resisting an officer by providing a false identity. He was booked into jail after his arrest.
Cardona was also “a fugitive from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement,”(ICE) according to the report.
He had been previously deported from the United States. The law enforcement organization has placed a detainer on him so that he can be deported again after his legal affairs are settled.
