27 year old Jamie R. Treadway seemed to have panicked and backed this Dodge pickup into a ditch by RB's Lake Grocery off FM-2457.
DWI, False Information, Warrants, and More, BLANCHARD, May 19, 2014 - At approximately 9:35 pm on May 18, 2014, Sergeant Lee Rogers with the Polk County Sheriff's Office stopped by RB's Lake Grocery off FM-2457. As Rogers was standing in front of the convenience store, a white Dodge pickup pulled into the parking lot. The driver saw Sergeant Rogers and apparently panicked. She suddenly threw her pickup into reverse and shot backwards (right into a ditch). Rogers ran to the pickup to see what was going on. The driver identified herself to Rogers as 20 year old Sarah Barnes. Good Samaritans that were nearby used a pickup to pull her vehicle out of the ditch. As Rogers spoke to Barnes, he smelled the scent of alcohol and requested a Trooper. Trooper Kevin Burman with the Texas Highway Patrol arrived and spoke with Barnes. He administered a field sobriety test. Barnes struggled to walk a straight line and to perform other tasks asked of her for a field sobriety test. Burman placed her under arrest for driving while intoxicated.
Not Her Real Name...
As things unfolded, Burman got her driver's license and the Kansas License revealed her real name (Jamie R. Treadway, 27, of Livingston). Treadway had recently moved to Livingston from Anthony, Kansas. An inventory of her vehicle turned up a full bottle of MD 20/20 and a half bottle of MD 20/20. In addition to being charged with DWI, Treadway is facing charges of giving false identification as a fugitive from justice, open container of alcohol, and she had warrants out for her arrest. Treadway's vehicle was recovered by Fawbush Body Shop and will be stored in Goodrich.
