A Michigan man made fast friends with his local police department after leading officers on a prolonged, drunken pursuit.
Officers from the Sumpter Township Police Department responded to a report of an intoxicated motorist at 9:45 p.m., Monday June 11, in the area of Sumpter Road near Willow Road. When they spotted the vehicle it fled southbound.
The fleeing motorist, a 44-year-old Allen Park man, crossed into Washtenaw County, where he fired at the pursuing officers at least five times. The pursuit continued until it reached the city of Milan border, south of Ann Arbor, where the driver “doubled back” and crashed into a patrol car.
The man was arrested and taken to the Wayne County Jail to await charges. Five firearms and several thousands of rounds of ammunition were recovered from the man’s vehicle.
The guns and ammo are easily explained away; dude just wanted to make sure the local Tim Horton’s got his breakfast order right.
