Louisiana man shooting up heroin while driving crashes into police cruiser

  1. Rob Cypher
    A Slidell, LA police lieutenant suffered minor injuries after a man suspected of shooting up heroin while driving crashed into the back of the lieutenant's police vehicle.

    The crash happened around 4 p.m. Monday. The officer was monitoring traffic and was parked on the shoulder of Fremaux Avenue when he noticed a 2004 Lincoln LS veer off the roadway and head straight for his police vehicle. The officer saw the man driving look up but was unable to react before he crashed into the Chevy Tahoe.

    The driver of the Lincoln was 32-year-old Ronald Caplina. He was driving about 40 miles per hour when he crashed into the officer.

    The impact pushed the police officer's vehicle several feet, causing minor injuries to both the officer and Caplina, who was not wearing his seatbelt.

    Slidell Police tried asking Caplina why he was distracted, but he could not give them a clear answer. Police discovered a fresh syringe, along with suspected heroin, inside the vehicle. Police say the syringe had dried blood on the needle and Caplina had fresh injection marks on his arm.

    Police believe Caplina was distracted because he was injecting heroin at the time of the crash.

    Caplina was cited with careless operation, driving under suspension and no seat belt. He was also booked for possession of a schedule I narcotic (heroin) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    I don't think he was shooting up while driving. First of all the needle had dried blood on it. So obviously it was there long enough to have dried. "fresh injection marks"... well yeah, if someone is an addict odds are there will always be "fresh" injection marks because they have to shoot up umpteen times a day. So he couldn't give an answer as to why he was distracted, doesn't necessarily mean that he couldn't answer because he was shooting up. Maybe he did his shot, got in the car (with his shit), and then nodded out and crashed into the cop. Maybe he just didn't want to admit that the crash was caused because he was high.
