A police report says an officer was checking a reported disturbance when he heard brakes squeal and an SUV slam into the patrol car behind him.

Arresting officer John Sartell said in an affidavit: "I asked her why she was not dressed while driving and she stated she was taking a Snapchat photo to send to her boyfriend while she was at a red light." Police say a subsequent search of the vehicle revealed an open bottle of wine in the console cup holder.

The Texas A&M University student posted 200 dollar (£164) bond.
