Man arrested after hitting jail gate, threatening deputies

Posted:

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- A 41-year-old man has been arrested after driving his car into a loading dock gate at the Oakland County Jail and threatening to kill deputies.

The Oakland Press of Pontiac reports Wednesday that the Brandon Township resident struck the gate Tuesday and yelled threats at deputies who were leaving the Pontiac jail at the end of their shifts.

The man drove away, but was spotted a short time later driving from a car dealership lot in nearby Waterford. He was traveling in the direction of the jail when police arrested him.

Officers found a martial arts' throwing star, a knife and prescription medication pill bottles inside his vehicle.

Authorities were seeking a blood sample from the man as part of the investigation.

The jail gate suffered only scratches.
