Rusk County, TX — An East Texas man is set for sentencing after a Rusk County jury found him guilty Monday of driving while intoxicated at high rate of speed.
On November 26, 2011, a sergeant with the Rusk County Sheriff's Office stopped Courtney Chambless, 34, of Anderson County, for driving 126 miles per hour on Highway 79, heading toward Louisiana.
After performing standardized field sobriety tests on Chambless, he was arrested and a breath sample was refused.
Judge Chad Dean presided over the trial.
