He went over a raised center median and struck a traffic sign, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.

An officer investigating the traffic collision determined that Lacroix had been driving under the influence, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ken Black.

It was discovered that Lacroix had an outstanding arrest warrant for DUI and that he had been driving on a suspended license because of a  prior DUI conviction, according to Black.

Lacroix was uninjured in the crash and was subsequently booked at the jail in Indio.
