The vehicle, a red Chevy Silverado driven by Joan Limmer Cummings, 59, of Buna was on the right shoulder of US-146. With the truck door open and Cummings standing there, she appeared to be urinating using the pickup door to conceal her actions. When Sergeant Bowen pulled up and got out, Cummings quickly got back into her pickup. Bowen spoke with Cummings and became suspicious of intoxication. Trooper Allen Stanton was dispatched to investigate. As it turns out, Cummings was allegedly intoxcated from beer and pills. Further, a portable breathalyzer test was administered on Cummings. Stanton was assisted by Sergeant Bowen and Deputy Dustin Lowery with the Polk County Sheriff's Office. Cummings was loaded into Deputy Lowery's patrol unit and tansported to Polk County Jail and charged with suspicion of driving while intoxicated. A glut of pills was confiscated from Cummings' vehicle. A rollback wrecker from LakeView Wrecker Service recovered Cummings' vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston.
