Alexis Leech, 36, of the 1100 block of Buckingham St., was pulled over at 5 p.m., after her car swerved while passing a Perkins police officer, according to a police report. The officer noticed Leech allegedly looking down at her lap as he passed by.
The officer turned around and activated his cruiser’s lights. He also noticed her head was still cocked down and her car drifted out of the lane for a second time, the report said.
Leech allowed the officer to check her phone, where he found a text time-stamped one minute prior to the traffic stop, the report said. Leech said she’d been reading the text, and she apologized for the incident, the report said.
The officer issued citations for texting while driving and driving left of center.
