Investigators were able to determine uller approached the victim on the parking lot of a nearby hotel and asked for a ride to the hospital. Once inside of the vehicle, Fuller allegedly produced a pistol, and ordered her to drive around.
During the incident, Fuller reportedly committed a sexual battery upon the victim. She then drove the vehicle in reverse into a tree, and was able to escape from Fuller.
