A 43-year-old Pontiac man was arrested early Saturday morning after side swiping an Oakland County Sheriff’s Office patrol car and registering a .346 on a portable breathalyzer test, more than four times the legal limit of .08.
The man also had three children in the car with him during the 1:49 a.m. incident on Saginaw in Pontiac. The children were released to the custody of their mother, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.
Two patrol cars and the officers were stopped with their lights flashing when the man allegedly crossed Saginaw from the opposite direction, side swiping one of the patrol cars, causing damage to the drivers’ side of both vehicles.
The sheriff’s office was seeking warrants against the man for driving while intoxicated second offense and three counts of child endangerment. A call to the prosecutor’s office for an update on charges was not immediately returned.
No one was injured in the crash.
