Driver Rolls Vehicle, Arrested for DWI, MT ROSE, June 24, 2015 - At approximately 7:40 pm on June 24, 2015, a silver 2000 Dodge Durango, driven by Daniel Pringle, 32, of Livingston, was east-bound on FM-1988 just east of FM-3126. Pringle left the pavement to the right causing his vehicle to roll. Pringle's vehicle came to rest upright at the woodline. Pringle then fled the scene. Deputy Billy Duke with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was nearby and quickly located Pringle and brought him back to the scene. Deputy Duke was joined by Deputy Cody Hardy, also with the Polk County Sheriff's Office. Trooper Donny Akers with the Texas Highway Patrol was summoned to investigate. Trooper Akers conducted a field sobriety test and placed Pringle under arrest for driving while intoxicated. The DWI charge was enhanced due to an open container of beer in Pringle's vehicle. Additionally, Pringle was charged with driving with no driver's license and no insurance. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Pringle's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
