A Mississippi man was arrested early Wednesday morning for obstructing a passage, no driverís license and no insurance, according to Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen.
Mitchell Dalton Cochran, 21, of Waynesboro, was taken into custody after a Bossier Sheriffís deputy received a call that a vehicle was parked halfway on the road and the shoulder of the road. When the deputy arrived, he found the vehicle just east of Firetower Road on Highway 2 with the driverís side sitting on the roadway.
The deputy found Cochran sleeping inside the vehicle. He woke up and told the deputy he had been looking for the rig he works on, but ran out of gas. Instead of pushing the car off the road or calling 911 for help, Cochran went to sleep, causing a road hazard. Cochran was operating the vehicle without a license and has no insurance on it.
Cochran was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and booked. His bond is pending.
