However, he left his vehicle on the shoulder of I-12.

Troopers determined the driver of the vehicle was Stewart. A search of the vehicle revealed a syringe filled with a substance Troopers believed to be narcotics. The syringe was submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis, and the contents were determined to be Methamphetamines. Troopers obtained an arrest warrant for Stewart.
