A 59-year-old Wasilla resident on her way to court was cited for texting and driving Tuesday, Alaska State Troopers said.

Troopers said they received a 911 Report Every Dangerous Driver Immediately (REDDI) call about Fellows’ Nissan sedan driving recklessly around 3:40 p.m., and Fellows was stopped near the Glenn Highway in Palmer less than 10 minutes later.

She was issued a misdemeanor citation for texting while driving and released at the scene with a promise to appear in court, according to troopers.
