Driver texting while driving issued citation
A 21-year-old Ramsey woman was cited for texting while driving during a traffic stop at about 5 p.m. on Jan. 27.
An Elk River officer spotted the woman punching the keys on her phone in the area of Highway 10 and Morton Avenue. When he asked her about texting, she initially denied that she had.
When the officer asked if he could see her sent messages, she complied and admitted to texting as she opened them up.
Her last text was sent at 5:01 p.m., and the officer noted it was now 5:03 p.m. The message informed the person on the other end that she “puked” last night.
