The Fulshear Police Department recounted the incident on its Facebook page. On Saturday, an officer was driving down a road while on patrol and saw the car in front of him swerve around an object. As the officer approached the object, he realized it was a person, according to the police report.

The woman, who police said was believed to be intoxicated, fell asleep in the roadway after allegedly driving her car into a nearby ditch.

The officer rendered aid on the scene before arresting the woman on suspicion of public intoxication and taking her to jail, police said.
