Intoxicated Driver Slams Guard Rail and Gets Belligerent, LIVINGSTON, March 14, 2011 - At approximately 2:40 am on March 14, 2011, a gray 2008 Dodge Journey driven by Rosemary Viora Chizk, 60, of Livingston, was west-bound on FM-2457 when her vehicle veered to the right and slammed into the guard rail at Tempe Creek. Deputy Dustin Lowery with the Polk County Sheriff's Office witnessed the accident and radioed in to dispatch who sent an Americare Ambulance to the scene along with the Scenic Loop Volunteer Fire Department, Deputy Troy Binford and Trooper David Flowers with the Texas Highway Patrol. EMS personnel checked Rosemary Chizk out but she was okay and refused treatment. Deputies found a plethora of pills in Chizk's vehicle and a bottle of Riunite Wine that allegedly fell out of her car when she crashed into the guard rail. Trooper Flowers arrived and administered a field sobriety test on Chizk and placed her under arrest for driving while intoxicated. Chizk became very belligerent and cussed out Trooper Flowers and Deputy Binford. She was read her rights and loaded into a patrol unit and booked into Polk County Jail. Chizk has been charged two previous times with DWI, once in Polk County and once in Walker County if she is convicted three times for DWI she will be facing felony charges. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Chizk's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. The scene was cleared by 4 am.
