The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the area of northbound U.S. 23 near Clyde Road in Hartland Township on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018, for a report of a silver minivan ramming another vehicle; both vehicles were continuing north on U.S. 23 toward White Lake Road.

The minivan overturned somewhere in the area around the red pin.

A short time later, a deputy from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office located the silver minivan and attempted to stop it. The vehicle fled eastbound on White Lake Road, eluding the deputy. The minivan later ran off the roadway, striking a DTE power pole, and overturning in the front yard of a home off White Lake Road near Carmer Road.

The driver of the minivan resisted arrest, and was eventually arrested with assistance from the Michigan State Police. The suspect and deputy were later transported to St. Joseph Mercy Livingston Hospital in Howell for non life-threatening injuries; the deputy was treated for minor injuries and released.

Once the suspect is released, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office will be seeking charges for fleeing and eluding, resisting and obstructing, as well as assaulting a police officer.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted on the scene by Livingston EMS, Michigan State Police, Fenton City Police Department, and Fenton Fire Department.
