Multiple callers said they saw a white sedan driving on the shoulder, driving into oncoming traffic, and running a stop sign.

The deputy found the car partially parked on a curb at a Popeye’s. Employees at the restaurant then began motioning for his attention from the drive-thru window and told the deputy that the driver was inside causing a disturbance. 

Upon entering the Popeye's, the deputy saw the driver, identified as 61-year-old Belinda Hopper of Fredericksburg, yelling at the employees about her food order. The deputy noticed Hopper smelled like alcohol and was unsteady on her feet.
