Bryan Police Make DWI Arrest of 19 year old Miranda Kay Rader after she collided with a parked patrol car last night….
A police officer in Bryan, Texas was interviewing witnesses in response to a disturbance call on Wednesday night when an SUV ran into the rear end of his police cruiser, according to a police report obtained by The Eagle newspaper.
The officer described in his report how he approached the SUV and found Miranda Kay Rader scrambling to put her shirt back on, although her bra was still unfastened. He also described observing an open wine bottle in her vehicle.
Rader apparently explained to the officer that she was driving back to her dorm room and was trying to send a Snapchat photo to her boyfriend in the moments before the crash.
Although she did not report any injuries, Rader was taken to the hospital to obtain a blood sample after failing part of the field sobriety tests. She was then arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated with an open container, and also received a ticket for being a minor in possession of alcohol.
Rader was held in the Brazos County Jail until posting $2,000 bail on Thursday morning.
