Two Arrested in Accident: 1 for DWI, 1 for Warrant, LIVINGSTON, January 27, 2010 - Shortly after 10 am on January 27, 2010, Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Christian Schanmier was west bound of US-190 by Wal-Mart when he spotted a late model black Chevy Cavalier driven by Mary Ann Froust, 25, of Livingston. Froust was driving over 80 miles per hour. Deputy Schanmier turned his patrol unit around to pull Froust over but not before Froust slammed into the back of a white 2007 Toyota Sequoia in front of McDonald's and driven by Ron Rosenquist of Huntsville. The Sequoia and Rosenquist were okay, but Froust's vehicle was totaled. Deputy Mark Dubose was dispatched to the scene and the Livingston Police Department including Officer Kevin Blackburn. After running a check on Froust and her passenger, Tonya Moore, 25, of Livingston, it was discovered that Moore had a warrant out for her arrest for credit card abuse. Froust was intoxicated. One lane of traffic on each side of US-190 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Tonya Moore was booked into Polk County Jail for her arrest warrant and Froust was booked in and charged with failure to control speed, driving while intoxicated, and driving with open container of alcohol. Froust's vehicle was recovered by a rollback wrecker from Fawbush Body Shop where it will be stored in Livingston. The scene was cleared before 11 am.
