Officer Ross Gilbert said the driver, Colondra Hamilton, a 36-year-old Downtown resident, was sitting with her pants unzipped and a sex toy in her lap.
He said Hamilton told him she was using the toy while watching a sex video on a laptop computer that a passenger in the front seat held up so she could see it.
Gilbert charged her with “driving with inappropriate alertness” and having illegal tinted windows, according to the traffic ticket.
The incident occurred at 7 p.m., Aug. 17, on Township Avenue in Elmwood Place, a small village in central Hamilton County.
Gilbert admitted he had never encountered a traffic case quite like this one.
“It’s very unusual,” he said. “This is a first for me.”
Hamilton was released on her own recognizance soon after her arrest.
She is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Hamilton County Municipal Court
