CLOSE CALL LEADS TO ARREST An intoxicated driver's near miss of striking a patrol vehicle leads to an arrest in Elmwood Township. On 10/22/18, at 2057 hours, a patrol Sergeant was parked stationary on M-22 in Greilickville, running radar. The patrol vehicle was approximately 8 feet off the roadway from the fog line facing northbound. A northbound 2015 silver Nissan Suv traveling northbound passed the cruiser nearly sideswiping it. The patrol sergeant pulled out and attempted to stop the Nissan. While doing this the Nissan continued northbound before veering sharply to the right and striking a guardrail and a mailbox. The driver, a 70 year old man from Holly, Michigan, was uninjured in the traffic crash. He was found to be intoxicated and placed under arrest for suspicion of operating a vehicle intoxicated. He was lodged in the Leelanau County Jail. Below is a photo of the damaged guardrail.
