Woman arrested after allegedly driving drunk on school campus

Eunice Police arrested an Arnaudville woman this morning after she allegedly drove onto the campus of St. Edmund Elementary School intoxicated.

Skyla Briley, 29, was booked for DWI first offense and reckless operation. This is the third time in about a month that she has been booked with DWI, said Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot. She was booked by state police on Jan. 8 with DWI, and again in Leonville on Feb. 12 with DWI, Fontenot said.

At the time of this incident, his blood alcohol level was 0.295 g%. The legal limit in Louisiana is 0.08 g%

According to police, his car left North Third Street, entered the parking lot between the elementary school and the church rectory, crossed a walkway between the school and the cafeteria and came to a stop just as she entered the playground. No students were in the area, but it was shortly before the students were there, the chief said.

Briley was booked with a DWI first offense because she was not convicted of DWI. As these three cases move through the court system, if she is found guilty on any of the other charges, the others will be changed, the chief explained. If she is found guilty of the first two cases, this third will become a third DWI misdemeanor and it is a felony, the chief said.
