Intoxicated Driver Gets His Truck Stuck, Arrested for DWI and More, SPRING CREEK, May 22, 2015 - At approximately 1:55 pm on May 22, 2015, a white Ford F-150 driven by Gerson Antonio Quijano, 29, of Onalaska, was west-bound on US-190 West when his truck left the pavement to the left and got stuck in the soft ground (from recent rains). Deputy Mark Dubose with the Polk County Sheriff's Office came upon the scene and checked on Quijano. Quijano appeared intoxicated. Trooper Zach Lenderman with the Texas Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene and was soon joined by Trooper Chris Cain. Quijano was checked by personnel from Americare Ambulance Service and turned over to Trooper Lenderman. Lenderman administered a field sobriety test and placed Quijano under arrest for driving while intoxicated. Quijano was also cited for no driver's license and is facing a felony charge for having a social security card with his name on it, but a number that belonged to another person (social security fraud is a felony). Lenderman found iced down beer in a cooler in the bed of Quijano's pickup. During an inventory of the vehicle, Trooper Chris Cain found a bottle with pills. Traffic was not blocked during investigation. A rollback wrecker from Fawbush Wrecker Service recovered Quijano's vehicle and it will be stored in Goodrich.
