Intoxicated Driver Slams Into Fence, LIVINGSTON, February 11, 2011 - At approximately 1:30 am on February 11, 2011, homeowner Carl Burris was in his house on Easy Street when he heard something crash outside. Burris looked out a window and noticed that a truck had slammed into his fence in his front yard. Burris called the police and Deputy Billy Duke with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was dispatched along with Livingston Police Officer Sergeant Darrell Newman. The driver of a green 2001 Ford F-150 lost control and slammed into a column on the fence and spun out at the end of Burris' driveway. The driver of the truck was Timothy Eugene Leggett, 29, of Goodrich. Duke smelled a heavy scent of alcohol coming from Leggett and Leggett also showed symptoms consistent with intoxication. Trooper Chris Stanbery with the Texas Highway Patrol was summoned and performed some initial tests on Leggett and determined that Leggett was intoxicated. Leggett was taken to the Polk County Sheriff's Office where a full sobriety test was conducted and Leggett was placed under arrest for driving while intoxicated. A rollback wrecker from Harwood Wrecker Service recovered Leggett's vehicle and it will be stored at Harwood Manner located at 101 Harwood Drive. The scene was cleared by 3:45 am.
