A Haughton man was arrested early Sunday morning for second offense driving while intoxicated and careless operation, according to Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen.
Joseph Robert Rosson, 55, of Peaceful Pines Drive, was taken into custody after a Bossier Sheriff’s deputy clocked the vehicle he was driving at 68 miles per hour in a 55-miles-per-hour zone. Another deputy then paced Rosson at 70 miles per hour in a 55-miles-per-hour zone.
Rosson performed poorly on the field sobriety tests, claiming he had back problems. He was taken into custody and transported to the Haughton Police Department for Intoxilyzer testing. Rosson refused to be tested and became very belligerent, screaming and cursing at the deputies. He said his lawyer had advised him to never submit to Intoxilyzer testing. He was arrested for D.W.I. in 1981, 1987 and 2006.
Rosson was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and booked. His bond was set at $2,200.
