Police say a Texas A&M University freshman rear-ended a parked patrol car moments after she took a topless selfie for her boyfriend on Wednesday, October 26, in Bryan, Texas.
According to a police affidavit obtained by Us Weekly, Miranda Kay Rader was driving a gray Acura SUV when she slammed into a cruiser belonging to officer John Sartell, who was responding to a disturbance call in the area.
When Sartell approached the vehicle, he noticed that Rader’s bra was unclasped and she was attempting to put a black blouse on. He also observed an open bottle of wine in the center console cupholder, per the affidavit.
“I asked the female if she was injured and she said that she was not,” Sartell wrote in the report. Then Sartell posed another important question. “I asked her why she was not dressed while driving and she stated that she was taking a Snapchat photo to send to her boyfriend while she was at the red light,” Sartell wrote. The 19-year-old reportedly admitted that she had been drinking wine at a friend’s house and that she had consumed a quarter of the bottle.
After a “glassy”-eyed Rader failed a sobriety test, she was taken to St. Joseph’s hospital to have blood drawn and then transported to Brazos County Detention Center. The college student was charged with driving while intoxicated with an open container and ticketed for being a minor in possession of alcohol. She was released on $2,000 bond.
On October 27, the Bryan Police department tweeted Rader’s mug shot with the caption: “Don’t Drink and Drive! Don’t #snapchat photos to your boyfriend and drive.”
