A Waterproof, Louisiana man is facing charges after officials say he was found hunting from a vehicle after hunting hours.
Tyrone Washington, 46, was arrested last Sunday night on multiple charges including driving while intoxicated, drug possession and hunting from a moving vehicle.
Officer Adam Einck with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fishers says an agent saw Washington hunting from his vehicle along the Concordia and Tensas parish line.
Officials say when the agent tried to speak to Washington, the suspect drove off but stopped after a brief chase.
Einck says the agent discovered two deer in the back of Washington's truck as well as prescription drugs without a prescription.
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
