RAPIDES PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - On Feb. 26, 2014 at approximately 3:00 PM deputies assigned to the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office Metro Division initiated a traffic stop in the area of LA 181 and US 71 in Cheneyville for failure to signal a turn and no seatbelt. 

The vehicle refused to stop and fled deputies. 

A brief vehicle pursuit ended with the vehicle stopping in the area of US 71 and Jefferson Street in Cheneyville. 

The driver, identified as Fritzpatrick Destin, 30, of Cheneyville, was detained and advised of his Miranda rights, according to RPSO. 

Deputies said they observed numerous loose Hydrocodone pills scattered in the driver's seat and Destin admitted to eating two pills and claimed that was why he didn't pull over. 

Destin was found to have $2,942.00 cash on his person, which was seized. 

Destin was transported to the Rapides Parish Detention Center, booked with Possession of CDS III to Distribute, No Seat Belt, No Signals, and Flight from an Officer.

Destin was later released on $10,750.00 bond.
