A 20-year-old Texas A&M student was arrested Wednesday night after she allegedly crashed her car into a police while trying to take a topless selfie to send her boyfriend on Snapchat.


The Eagle and KBTX report that as Bryan Police Officer John Sartell was responding to a disturbance call an SUV crashed into his patrol car, which parked outside, its emergency lights flashing. “I heard the sound of a vehicle braking hard and heard what sounded like a vehicle collision,” he wrote in his report

Sartell said he walked outside to find a 20-year-old Texas A&M student in the SUV. The woman was struggling to put her shirt back on and her bra wasn’t fastened, Sartell noted. “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 a red light,” the officer wrote.


The student reportedly told Sartrell that she was on her way back to her dorm and had been drinking wine prior to the selfie-caused crash. She reportedly failed part a field sobriety test and was booked into the Brazos County jail, where she was charged with DWI with an Open Container and was issued a citation for Minor in Possession of Alcohol. She was later released on $2,000 bail, according to The Eagle
