CADDO PARISH, La. (KSLA) — A fight between two men in a car led to a crash, two arrests and the seizure of 11 pints of Promethazine syrup, authorities say.

Caddo sheriff’s deputies told KSLA News 12 that the passenger allegedly grabbed the wheel from the driver just as they were crossing into Louisiana.

Deputies told KSLA News 12 that they also found a jar of marijuana and a scale inside the car.
Authorities said the driver, 26-year-old Rio De Janero De Marquez Brown, will be charged with one count each of possession of a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance with intent to distribute and possession of a legend drug with intent to distribute.
And passenger 24-year-old Willie Robinson, they said, will be charged with one count each of careless operation of a motor vehicle and simple battery.
Both will be booked into Caddo Correctional Center, authorities said.
