No one is above the law, and our actions and choices have consequences. When I chose to drive myself home, I made two awful mistakes, and like anyone, I will face the consequences of my actions. Texting while driving is never ok. Driving under the influence of any amount of alcohol is never ok. I’m absorbing the seriousness of these charges and I’ve learned a life- long lesson. I want to thank the Shreveport Police department for their fair and professional handling of this situation. I expect to be treated as any member of our community and am not privy to special privileges. I humbly accept and appreciate the countless messages of prayerful support. I am dedicated to earning and restoring the public’s faith in me moving forward as the public servant elected to represent District B.

Arrest records obtained by KEEL News show Fuller was arrested early on Thursday for Driving While Intoxicated and Texting While Driving.

According to Shreveport Police, Fuller was found in the 500 Block of Kirby Place in Shreveport just after 2am. The reports says

"(SPD officer) observed a 2017 Fiat 500X om the middle of the roadway in the 500 block of Kirby Pl without any lights on.
