Rodney Allen Broussard was booked in the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center Monday on warrants for operating while intoxicated, first offense; aggravated flight from an officer; and two counts of direct contempt of court.

The charges are from October 2023 and stemmed from a Louisiana State Police arrest, Kayla Vincent, public information officer with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office, said.
