BUSTED IN BATON ROUGE: Louisiana Dem Rep Cited For DUI After Doing Burnout, Police say

Published on

Yes, most Democrat lawmakers think they’re above the law, but it’s true, every once in a while they actually get arrested for their actions, including a Democrat Lawmaker from Baton Rouge who was caught doing ‘burnouts’ in his car that ultimately led to his DUI arrest.

Louisiana State Representative Larry Selders (D) was arrested over the weekend for driving under the influence.

Selders, 40, of Baton Rouge was driving a 2018 Dodge Challenger near Lousiana State University’s campus around 2 a.m. on Sunday when troopers observed him traveling at a high rate of speed while producing a burnout with his vehicle, a press release says.

Upon coming into contact with Selders, the trooper suspected impairment and conducted a series of standardized field sobriety tests.

According to Fox News, the naughty Dem was taken to the LSU Police Department where he consented to a chemical breath test, which registered over the legal limit.

Not only was Selders arrested for driving while impaired, but he was also cited for reckless operation and driving on a suspended license.

Selders released a statement on Facebook acknowledging the arrest.

“On Saturday night, I was stopped by the Louisiana State Police and subsequently charged. I hold the trust of my family and constituency in high regard and remain committed to maintaining that trust,” the statement began. “As a father and husband, I personally understand the importance of driving safely. And as a public servant, I take the responsibility to keep my community safe seriously. Let me be clear, I am committed to making better decisions and I also encourage the community at large to use this as an example to do the same.”

Selders’ Facebook post concluded, “I am humbled by the outpouring of support and I ask for your prayers for my family during this time.”

Selders, the Democrat lawmaker, was elected to service state district 67 in 2019, according to his online biography.
