Bob Smith's fence at his residence in Lakeside Village was crashed by an alleged intoxicated driver.
Driver Crashes Residential Fence, Arrested for DWI, LIVINGSTON, June 9, 2014 - At around 5:30 pm on June 8, 2014, a brown Chevy truck was being driven through Lakeside Village (Subdivision off US-59 just south of Livingston city limits). The pickup crashed through a fence at the residence of Bob Smith. The driver of the pickup allegedly attempted to get away. With the help of some neighbors, Mr. Smith was alerted and caught up with the driver, Shawnie Denise Williams, 45, of Livingston. Williams' pickup had white boards (from the fence) protruding from her pickup's radiator. Deputy William Jerry with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the scene. Deputy Jerry summoned an ambulance from Americare Ambulance Service to see if Williams was having in medical problems. An ambulance crew arrived and Williams checked out okay. Minutes later, Trooper Chris Cain with the Texas Highway Patrol arrived. Trooper Cain and Deputy Jerry retrieved a very large amount of prescription pills from Williams' vehicle (enough to fill the troopers state issued trooper cowboy hat). Trooper Cain administered some field sobriety tests on Williams and placed her under arrest for driving while intoxicated. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Williams' vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
