Christie A. Edgar of Centreville was taken into police custody and charged with driving while intoxicated following the collision at Lee Highway and Stone Road about 8:40 p.m. Monday.

The chief was stopped at a red light in his unmarked 2017 Ford Explorer when authorities said the woman rear-ended him with her Nissan sport utility vehicle.

Roessler was brought to a local hospital for treatment and released late last night. He was back at work this morning.

    Well done, Madame. I’ll bet you worked both alcohol and a cell phone into this stunt.

    Classic Mike! that sounds about right…..happy holidaze….you just DUI’ed a police chief!
    She still looks “perked” in the mug shot.

      She looks rather unimpressed with her stunning feat of precision targeting – not easily done when the 500 point target vehicles go unmarked.

    I’m just glad Chief Roessler is okay! I hope the drunk woman gets help. She really needs it!
