BRYAN, Texas – Don't drink, drive and Snapchat. That's the lesson for a 19-year-old Texas A&M student who was caught topless after allegedly crashing into a police car.

Bryan police Officer John Sartell responded to a disturbance call Thursday night. Sartell said he heard the sound of a vehicle's brakes and a collision.

Miranda Kay Rader crashed into his patrol car with her SUV, police say. When he approached Rader, he saw that she was wearing an "unclasped brassiere" and was trying to put her blouse back on, according to the report. He also found an open bottle of wine in the vehicle.

Rader told Sartell that she was taking a Snapchat photo to send to her boyfriend while she was stopped at a red light.

Rader was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated with an open container, and issued a ticket for minor in possession.
