WKU assistant arrested for DWI

Western Kentucky defensive coordinator Lance Guidry was arrested early Saturday morning for driving while intoxicated on College Drive, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Guidry, 40, a native of Welsh, La., was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count each of second-offense DWI and improper lane usage, the affidavit says.

Guidry was previously arrested for DWIs on April 1, 1990, and Sept. 12, 2003, according to the affidavit, though it does not say where those arrests took place.

WKU head coach Willie Taggart had no comment when asked twice about Guidry after the game.

Western Kentucky senior associate athletic director Todd Stewart said Guidry coached for Western Kentucky in Saturday’s game against LSU in Tiger Stadium. Stewart said the university would have no further comment.

Guidry was booked by Baton Rouge Police officers at 2:51 a.m. Saturday, parish prison records show, after he was pulled over by officers in the 2400 block of College Drive at 1:03 a.m., the affidavit says.

Officers noticed Guidry swerve his right side tires onto the center white lines twice and his left tires onto the center yellow lines on Constitution Avenue twice, the affidavit says.

An officer pulled Guidry over and put him through a field sobriety test, which Guidry performed poorly, the affidavit says.

Guidry registered a 0.123 blood alcohol content, the affidavit says.

A 1995 graduate of McNeese State, Guidry is in his first season at Western Kentucky after spending the past two seasons as defensive backs coach at Miami (Ohio). Guidry spent two coaching stints at McNeese State, two at Carencro High School (where he was head coach from 2005-07) and one at Leesville High School.

Guidry is the father of McNeese State defensive back Janzen Jackson, a former LSU commitment who transferred to McNeese before the start of this season after being dismissed at Tennessee.
