On Monday,  January 29, 2018, Sircaria Coleman, 30, from Shreveport, Louisiana was arrested  for deserting the United States Army, when Carnival Cruise Lines cruise ship Carnival Triumph set sail on a five-day Caribbean cruise from  New Orleans, Louisiana.

According to authorities, Coleman posted bond on August 15, 2012, following an arrest somewhere in Louisiana on unspecified allegations. She never returned to her post in Fort Carson, Colorado, and the Army issued a warrant to arrest Coleman on a charge of military desertion several months later.

Coleman was working at a cellphone dealership when she was captured, court records said.

Orleans Parish Criminal Magistrate Court Judge Harry Cantrell ordered Coleman held without bail. She waived extradition proceedings and as of Wednesday was awaiting to be transferred out of New Orleans to Colorado.
