Drunk driver crashes into police cruiser (VIDEO)

A Bratenahl, Ohio, police officer’s close encounter with a drunken driver was captured on his dash cam.

Officer Timothy O’Haire was in the middle of a traffic stop when his cruiser was side-swiped by a passing minivan. No one was injured, but after catching up to the minivan, officers noticed what smelled like alcohol and the driver, Antoine Keith Miller, appeared to be under the influence.

Officers, who felt the driver was too drunk to be driving, asked Miller to submit to a field sobriety test, but he refused. Nonetheless, Miller was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence and failure to control his vehicle.
