A Metairie man was arrested on Sunday after striking and injuring a pedestrian for his 2nd DWI only 4 days after an arrest for his first. Melvin Salinas-Giron supposedly struck the pedestrian crossing at a crosswalk around 9:15pm on Sunday evening. The pedestrian was taken to LSU Interim hospital and his condition unknown. When Salinas-Giron was pulled over, he smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech. When issued the Breathalyzer, he blew .210, more than twice the legal limit. He was arrested and booked on a 2nd offense DWI, reckless operation, vehicular negligent injury, driving without a license, and a fugitive charge. As of Monday there was no additional information on the fugitive charge.
