Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana


A freshman LSU pitcher has been suspended from the team after he was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Carson Baranik was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count each of first-offense DWI, disobeying a red light, and reckless operation of a vehicle.

Baranik reportedly had glassy eyes, slurred speech, poor balance and an odor of alcohol.  Furthermore, he reportedly performed poorly on a field sobriety test and his blood-alcohol content was 0.144 percent.  For those under 21, a reading of 0.02 percent is presumptive evidence of drunken driving.

Baranik is the second LSU pitcher to be arrested on suspicion of DWI since January of last year.  In fact, another player was dismissed from the team after being arrested in January 2011 and booked on counts of DWI, reckless operation of a vehicle and disobeying a red light.

If you have been arrested and charged with DWI in Louisiana, contact Baton Rouge DWI Attorney Carl Barkemeyer to discuss your case.
