DPS Trooper Brent Henry administers a sobriety test.
Driving While on PCP on Saturday Night, SODA, November 1, 2008 - Shortly before 8 pm on November 1, 2008, Gary Marett and his wife, Evelyn, were driving down US-190 East in the west-bound lane when a car coming from the east-bound lane entered Marett's lane and was coming head on at Gary and his wife. They managed to avoid the car (a black 2004 Suzuki Verona) and witnessed it proceed to its left, off the road, and plunge into the woodline. Marett called 911 and Polk County Sheriff Deputy Billy Duke was dispatched to the scene. When Duke arrived he confiscated a 1 oz. plastic bottle from Damien Williams, 28, of Woodville. The bottle was nearly full and had a suspicious smell. Shortly after that, DPS Trooper Brent Henry arrived and immediately recognized the substance in the bottle as PCP. Henry administered a field sobriety test which Williams failed, and placed Williams under arrest for Driving While Intoxicated. The bottle contained nearly 28 grams of PCP. Williams was driven to Polk County Jail by Duke and was booked in for DWI. A rollback wrecker from Fawbush Body Shop recovered Williams' vehicle and the vehicle will be stored a Fawbush Body Shop in Livingston. 28 grams of PCP is a second degree felony.
