Officer J. Rawls was on patrol when he clocked Willis traveling at 58 in a 45 mile per hour zone in May. During that stop, Willis allegedly produced a driver’s license for Wyteshia Shanee Rogers, and was released with a speeding ticket.

On June 16, Rawls was attempting to serve warrants from driving while license revoked and identity theft on Willis, and he recognized her from the prior speeding ticket, when she allegedly produced Rogers’ license. Willis was taken into custody on the additional charges at that time.
