UPDATE: 10/31/2022 10 p.m. Youngsville Police Chief Rickey Boudreaux has confirmed with KLFY that a woman was arrested after driving her vehicle into the sports complex at a roundabout and then fleeing the scene.
Boudreaux is not releasing the suspect’s name.
He says it is because the case is still under investigation.
Boudreaux says it is possible that she was distracted.
Impairment, he says, is yet to be determined.

Officers then canvassed the area and located the suspect’s vehicle on Guillot Rd.
The suspect was given summons for hit-and-run, according to YPD.
Note: A summons is considered an arrest, the suspect was let go on a citation.
No injuries were reported.
Mayor Ken Ritter commented on the destroyed sign and said, “We will rebuild. You can’t keep a good roundabout down!”
