Topless in-car selfie attempt climaxes with rear-end bonking

Don't drink and drive and Snapchat while naked from the waist up. Especially near Police

By Simon Sharwood, 28 Oct 2016

A young woman's attempt to take a topless selfie has ended up with a rear-end cop bonking.

Miranda Kay Rader fell foul of Texas' City of Bryan Police Department has “after she collided with a parked patrol car last night.”

“According to Rader she was sending photos through snapchat to her boyfriend,” says the department's Facebook post on the matter. The Department's too polite to include elements of this story widely-circulated elsewhere, such as Reuters' report that says “when the officer whose car had been hit approached Rader, she was trying to put on her blouse.”

Rader's therefore been widely interpreted as attempting a topless selfie.

She's also been charged with driving while under the influence as an open bottle of wine was reportedly found in her car. Said beverage may explain the topless selfie.

Welcome to the Internet, Ms. Rader. The Register can assure you that once the initial wave of global mockery subsides, it's often quite nice here. ®
