A Michigan pastor was charged Wednesday with eight counts of drunken driving.
Officers told WXYZ that the chaotic scene unfolded when police confronted an allegedly intoxicated pastor, David Jones, in his car outside a convenience store in Ernack County, 1–75 miles away.
Police said Jones refused to cooperate with the deputy and threw his car on the highway, slamming into the back of a building.
Arena County Undersheriff Don McIntyre told the outlet that the pastor allegedly turned around and got into a patrol car that had followed him.
“If you turn your vehicle and intentionally hit a police vehicle, you will be charged with attempted murder by the police,” McIntyre said.
The MLA was not injured. The report said that after the collision, he was forced to crush Jones with his car as the suspect continued to protest.
The pastor was being held on a one million dollar bond.
