This older model Buick Road Master becomes quite dangerous when rolling down the highway being driven by an intoxicated driver.
High on Pills, Driver Arrested on US-146, SCHWAB CITY, May 5, 2011 - Shortly after 5 pm on May 5, 2011, a call came into the Polk County Sheriff's Office to report a driver who was weaving and nearly hit another car. Game Warden Brandon Mosley was in the area and found the car on the shoulder of 146 a short distance north of FM-2665. Mosley held the scene until DPS Trooper Ramey Bass arrived. Trooper Bass conducted a field sobriety test on the driver (Deborah Henderson, 44, of Livingston). Henderson couldn't seem to perform any of the tasks required for a field sobriety test. Bass placed Henderson under arrest and charged her with driving while intoxicated. According to Bass, Henderson admitted to have taken pills. Bass stated to PolkCountyToday.com that Henderson appeared to be intoxicated from pills. A rollback wrecker from Harwood Wrecker Service recovered Henderson's vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston.

Henderson had trouble walking straight and following directions as she turned left rather than opposite direction.
When Trooper Bass placed Henderson under arrest she began to cry.
Henderson's rear tire shows where she ran off the road and picked up some grass.
