BATON ROUGE, La., — WKU defensive coordinator Lance Guidry was arrested at 1:03 a.m. Saturday for driving while intoxicated, according to an affidavit of probable cause obtained by the Baton Rouge Advocate.

Guidry was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of second-degree DWI and improper lane usage, according to the affidavit.

Guidry was released from the facility at 4:57 a.m. on $2,500 cash bond, a jail spokesman told the Herald.

The spokesman could not comment on who posted bail for Guidry or who the car in which Guidry was driving was registered to.

News of Guidry’s arrest broke Saturday during the Toppers’ game against Louisiana State.

WKU Associated Athletic Director Todd Stewart said Saturday that WKU had no comment and that Guidry would not be made available for comment after the game.

Guidry, currently in his first season as a Topper assistant, coached WKU’s game Saturday night against Louisiana State.

The affidavit states he has been arrested twice before for DWI, in April of 1990 and September of 2003.

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 put Guidry through a field sobriety test, which he didn’t pass.

His blood alcohol content was registered at 0.123.

Athletics Director Ross Bjork and Willie Taggart both declined to comment on the situation following the game, saying they would deal with it on Monday.
