37 year old Everett Young Mock, of Goodrich, was allegedly intoxicated when he wrecked his truck on FM-1988 East.
DWI and Assaulting a Peace Officer, Goodrich Man in Trouble, GOODRICH, May 26, 2017 - At approximately 9:35 pm on May 25, 2017, a blue 2014 Ford F-350, driven by Everett Young Mock, 37, of Goodrich was west-bound on FM-1988 East. Mock's vehicle left the pavement to the right, struck and damaged the guardrail, spun around backwards and crossed to the other side of the road and struck the guardrail on the other side and finally came to rest blocking both lanes of 1988. Deputy Josh Sanders with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was off duty and drove up on the scene where Mock's vehicle was and observed Mock trying to drive away (Mock's drive shaft was broken and left him immobile). Sanders showed Mock his law enforcement credentials and instructed Mock to put his vehicle in park. Mock wasn't listening very well so Sanders reached into the vehicle and put it into park. Sanders then reached into the vehicle again to turn the ignition off. Mock punched Sanders in the face. Sanders defended himself. Deputy Michaela Tinsley with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the scene and helped Sanders hold the scene until Trooper Chris Cain with the Texas Highway Patrol arrived. Trooper Cain asked Mock if he'd been drinking and Mock stated that he had "four or five". Cain placed cuffs on Mock and had him loaded him into a patrol unit. All traffic on 1988 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Mock was transported to Polk County Jail and is facing charges of driving while intoxicated (from the Highway Patrol) and assaulting a Peace Officer (from the Sheriff's Office). A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Mock's vehicle and it will be stored at Pollock's Body Shop in Livingston.
