Man who killed Folsom correctional officer in DUI crash arrested again

A man who was convicted a decade ago for the traffic death of a Folsom Prison correctional officer was involved in another crash overnight that injured a driver.

Scott Richard St. Pierre, 39, was arrested on suspicion of evading a police officer and resisting. He was booked into Sacramento County Jail early Friday morning with his bail set at $650,000.

Citrus Heights police spotted St. Pierre, who had an outstanding felony warrant from Placer County, in a vehicle 10 p.m. Thursday. He began driving evasively in Citrus Heights and a short pursuit continued onto Madison Avenue and then into the unincorporated part of the county on Auburn Boulevard.

Driving south on Auburn Boulevard, St. Pierre’s vehicle hit another vehicle near Winding Way, according to Citrus Heights Lt. Jason Russo. St. Pierre was arrested at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

In 2004 St. Pierre was sentenced to state prison for 10 years for the death in Roseville of a Folsom prison correctional officer who was on his way to work.

St. Pierre received the sentence after pleading no contest to a felony charge of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

St. Pierre’s car collided on Blue Oaks Boulevard on March 17, 2004 with a vehicle driven by Jerry Carldean Walker, 47, a Lincoln resident and Folsom prison correctional officer who was on his way to work at 9:25 p.m.

St. Pierre, then 28, had been arrested earlier on March 17, 2004 in Sacramento County on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and driving with a suspended license after his car was involved in a non-injury accident on Highway 50.
