All Miranda Rader wanted was to send her boyfriend a sensual photo.

Problem is, she was drunk. And driving.

Oh, and she rear ended a parked police cruiser while she was engaged in her risque’ snapchat selfie.

The err… unlucky cop wasn’t in his car at the time, but he looked up at the sound of screeching brakes and saw the Volvo crash into the back of his cruiser.  As he ran towards the crash, he noticed that Rader was laughing and trying to put her bra back on.

MySA.com says:

“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 said in the affidavit, adding that Rader had on an unclasped bra and was attempting to put on a black blouse when the officer approached her vehicle.

Sartell said in the affidavit that Rader told him she had an open bottle of wine in the car that she was bringing home from a friend’s house. Upon further inspection, Sartell found that the wine bottle was about a quarter of the way full with a “liquid that had the odor of an alcoholic beverage.”

Rader was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital to have her blood drawn before she was taken to the Brazos County Detention Center where she was booked and charged with driving while intoxicated with an open container, the affidavit states.

She was also given a minor in possession of alcohol possession citation.

Rader is listed as a general engineering freshman on the university’s website.

There are several lessons to be learned here. First, Miranda, it’s not a good idea to drink and drive. We Texans don’t take kindly to violations of our open container law. Second, your boyfriend could have waited 5 minutes. Texting (or Snapchatting) while driving is really dangerous, and as an engineering student, you should know that the g-forces created by even a slow crash can wreak havok on the human body. Finally, thankfully nobody was hurt. You have hopefully learned your lesson this time, but it could have been so much worse. If the officer had been retrieving something from his trunk, you would be headed to prison for manslaughter.
