Drunken Driving, Belligerent, Resisting Arrest, GOODRICH, December 4, 2009 - At around midnight on December 4, 2009, DPS Trooper Ramey Bass pulled a car over for driving 80+ miles per hour in a speed limit 55 zone. Bass pulled the black late model Pontiac G8 over on US-59 Goodrich on the south-bound side a short distance from the Trinity River Bridge. Bass questioned the driver of the vehicle, William Albert Skinner, Jr., 22, of Timpson, Texas. Bass could smell the scent of alcohol on Skinner and performed a field sobriety test on him. Skinner was cuffed and placed under arrest for DWI. According to Bass, after Skinner was cuffed, he became mouthy and belligerent. Bass said that Skinner began screaming to his passenger Norman Heath Skinner, 20, to run, and began to resist arrest and started banging his head into Bass' Trooper car. For Skinner's own safety, Bass pushed Skinner to the ground and held him there. In the meantime, Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Keith Franklin was pulling up and Skinner's younger brother jumped into the driver's seat of their Pontiac and took off. Franklin gave pursuit and managed to get the car to pull over at the Polk County Line just before entering San Jacinto County. By now, DA Investigator Mark Jones pulled in to give Bass assistance with his intoxicated driver. Franklin apprehended the younger Skinner and placed him under arrest. Preliminarily, William Albert Skinner Jr. will be charged with driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. He also has warrants for his arrest out of Shelby County for burglary. Norman Heath Skinner will be charged with fleeing in a vehicle (sate jail felony). A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered the vehicle and it will be stored at Polock's Body Shop in Livingston. The whole sordid affair was cleared by 1:27 am.
