The crash was loud enough to wake up Juan Johnson, who lives nearby, Channel 2 reported.
“It woke me up through the walls of my house, so it was pretty violent,” he said. “My first thought was to try to get some help.”
Officers determined Rappe was at fault, Brown said. She was taken to the Atlanta Grady Detention Center on charges of DUI, following too closely, reckless driving and driving too fast for conditions. Rappe is scheduled to be in court at 9 a.m. Monday for an arraignment hearing.
She had two prior DUI arrests in Doraville and Gwinnett County, which both ended in crashes, Channel 2 reported. The Doraville arrest happened in September 2013, while the Gwinnett incident was in February 2014.
Rappe completed an alcohol awareness course in 2017 as part of her probation, court records obtained by the news station show.
Goss' family said he'll need several months of rehabilitation, Channel 2 reported. A GoFundMe page that was created to help the officer support his family had raised $5,900 as of Thursday afternoon. The page, created by his 21-year-old daughter Monica Gross, alleges that Rappe was texting before the crash.
