Louisiana council member arrested on traffic charges
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Police in Shreveport have arrested a City Council member on charges of drunken driving and texting while driving.
KTBS-TV reports that jail records show 41-year-old LeVette Fuller was arrested near her home about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
She was released on her own recognizance. The TV station reports that a man who answered the door at her home said she was unavailable for comment.
A police report says the woman told an officer she was driving too fast around a curve while texting and hit a parked car.
The officer wrote that Fuller and her car smelled like alcohol. He found the vehicle in a road without its lights on.
Fuller was elected to the Shreveport City Council last year. She didn't immediately respond to a Facebook message seeking comment.
