The following information was supplied by White Lake Township Police. Arrests and charges do not indicate convictions.
A 36-year-old Pontiac resident was arrested on charges of operating while under the influence (OUI) in White Lake, Jan. 12 at 5 a.m., after police said he was driving down M-59 with significant damage to his car and two completely flat tires.
According to the report, an officer stopped the man after seeing the car's tail light was out and the car was sparking from driving with two flat tires. The tires were down to the rim, the report said.
When the officer spoke with the man, the report states, the man told him he was on his way to his girlfriend's house and that he thought he was driving on Elizabeth Lake Road, not M-59.
The man was given a field sobriety test, which he failed, and a preliminary breath test. The report states that the man registered a .19 blood alcohol level. The legal limit is .08.
The man was arrested and taken to Oakland County Jail and released after sobering up pending the issuance of a warrant for OUI charges.
The report states that police couldn't locate what caused the damage to the front end of the car, or the two flat tires.
