Texas Man Detained in Lincoln Parish for DWI, 113 mph Speeding

A Dallas, Texas resident was apprehended on Saturday by a Louisiana State Police trooper after he was clocked driving at 113 miles per hour on Interstate 20, close to Choudrant. Gustavo Santillano, 34, was also observed veering erratically between lanes before coming to a halt. Upon questioning, Santillano admitted to having used marijuana and methamphetamine earlier in the day and stated that marijuana and bags with possible traces of methamphetamine were present in his vehicle.

A trooper recovered a bag of marijuana from the center console of Santillano’s car. After conducting a poor performance on field sobriety tests, Santillano was taken into custody. Despite registering a zero result on a breathalyser test conducted at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center, a blood sample was taken at the Northern Louisiana Medical Center for further examination.

Checks revealed that Santillano had an outstanding warrant for assault on a public servant from the Austin Pardon and Parole Board. He was charged with first offense DWI, marijuana possession, and improper lane usage. As per the source from a law enforcement agency, though Santillano was arrested and charged, it is essential to remember the legal principle that individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court.
