Louisiana councilwoman pleads not guilty to traffic charges
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A council member in Louisiana has pleaded not guilty to driving while intoxicated and texting while driving.
News outlets report 41-year-old LeVette Fuller entered the plea in front of Caddo District Judge Ramona Emanuel on Wednesday morning. The charges stem from a crash involving the Shreveport city councilor in the early morning hours of July 4.
A police report says Fuller 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 said after Wednesday's hearing that this is the process and she's going through the process.
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Oct. 16.
