Amazingly, Buggs nor her female passenger were injured. Corporal Mark Dubose and Deputy Cody Hardy (both with the Polk County Sheriff's Office) were dispatched to the scene along with Troopers Allen Stanton and Chad Seamans with the Texas Highway Patrol. Buggs was found to be in possession of three pipes for smoking dope. As it turns out, there was a warrant out for Buggs' arrest.
