TEXTING AND DRIVING: A patrolman was in a marked patrol vehicle in the parking lot of the Troy Baptist Temple. The patrolman observed an SUV driving west on Staunton Rd. that appeared to be traveling faster than the posted 35 mph speed limit. The radar showed the vehicle to be traveling at 52 mph and the officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle. The officer had activated overhead lights and sounded the siren as the vehicle kept driving. The officer observed that vehicles in front of the SUV were pulling over as the female driver continued driving. The officer also activated the air horn as the driver still did not pull over and eventually stopped in the left hand turn lane of N. Market Street.
The officer exited the cruiser and approached the driver. The officer observed that she was looking down at her phone and appeared to be texting. The officer knocked on the window and the driver appeared to be startled as it was explained that the officer had been trying to stop her and asked that she pull into the adjacent parking lot.
The officer re-approached the driver and asked for her information and asked if she was texting while driving. She quickly admitted that she was and added that she was trying to set up an appointment. The driver was identified as Chelsee Evans and the officer returned to the patrol vehicle to prepare the citation.
Evans was issued a citation for the speed violation and given a verbal warning for texting while operating a vehicle.
