Driver Facing Felony DWI Charge After Crashing Pickup, Girlfriend Charged With Public Intoxication, GOODRICH, April 7, 2017 - At approximately 9:10 pm on April 6, 2017, a tan 2001 Dodge pickup, driven by Jeremy Wyatt, 27, of Goodrich, was east-bound on FM-1988 West. Wyatt's vehicle left the pavement to the left and spun around, then slid backwards into a barbed wire fence and short distance west of the subdivision of Shiloh Ridge. Corporal Adam Norris with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the scene along with Trooper Zach Lenderman with the Texas Highway Patrol. Trooper Lenderman spoke with Wyatt and noticed a strong smell of alcohol on Wyatt, and Wyatt's speech was severely slurred. Lenderman administered a field sobriety test on Wyatt and charged him with driving while intoxicated. When Lenderman was reading Wyatt his rights, Wyatt began shouting profanity, racial slurs, and stated that he was drunk and going to prison. The charge is felony DWI since this will be Wyatt's third or more DWI. Additionally, Wyatt's passenger girlfriend, Nadeline Smith, 31, of Livingston, was arrested and charged with public intoxication. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing was dispatched to recover Wyatt's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
