Arrest details of Scott woman accused of vehicular homicide, DWI

The 22-year-old Scott woman who stands accused of the vehicular homicide of Louisiana Racing Commission Chairman Jerry Meaux was recorded at a BAC level of .012, was suspected of using marijuana, and failed field sobriety tests, according to her arrest affidavit.

In addition to vehicular homicide, Blaire Marie Duhon is charged with first-offense DWI, driving left of center, and littering. The lead investigator at the scene indicated that "he located beer cans and drug paraphernalia paper near the scene," the arresting officer's report says.

"The subject was operating a motor vehicle on westbound LA 342 near mile post 0.9 (and) failed to maintain possession of her lane and crossed the center line. After crossing the center line, the vehicle struck an eastbound vehicle causing the driver to sustain fatal injuries. The subject was transported to the American Legion Hospital in Crowley, Louisiana, where she was located receiving medical attention. I spoke with the subject and detected several signs of impairment," the officer writes.

The officer said that Duhon was transported to the Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office for chemical testing. While Duhon was at APSO, she failed standard field sobriety tests.
