A 36-year-old woman was arrested for DWI by Rogers Police after causing one crash and nearly causing another after she weaved in traffic on Interstate 94 Wednesday, Feb. 19.

Police said they were initially called by a witness regarding a white sedan that “was all over the roadway” approaching Rogers on southbound Hwy. 101 (Main Street).

The witness advised dispatch that they attempted to pass the vehicle in question but was almost run off the roadway by the vehicle. Police said the caller was afraid to pass the vehicle.

Once the vehicle neared I-94 on southbound Main Street, it rear-ended an SUV that was stopped for a red light. The driver who was hit pulled over but the suspect’s vehicle continued onto eastbound Interstate 94.

The victim, along with the witness, continued to follow the vehicle until law enforcement was able to make contact.

“During that time, the suspect’s vehicle sped off at a high rate of speed and was weaving in and out of traffic nearly colliding with other motorist on the freeway,” police said.

Officers made contact with the driver who appeared impaired. Andrea Fuller, 36, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance. She was brought back to the Rogers Police Department where she consented to a blood test.

Fuller was booked and released by the Rogers Police Department pending test results.
