OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Oshkosh police say they've arrested a man for drunk driving after he crashed into a squad car and resisted arrest.

An anonymous caller tipped off the cops to a suspicious vehicle in the driveway of a business at 2125 W. 20th Avenue around 4:40 a.m. Wednesday. The vehicle had damage on the front quarter panel on the driver's side.

Police officers arrived on scene to find the driver passed out. When he did wake up, the 30-year-old Fond du Lac man began swearing at the cops. He then drove backwards into the front corner of a police car. 

Officers stated that they broke out the driver's side window of his car to prevent him from getting away. They took him to the hospital for a blood test. The suspect was then cleared to go to jail.

Police are still trying to figure out what the man’s car hit before their encounter. The blue 2000 Chevrolet Impala not only had damage to one side, but had been driven with no tire on the front driver’s side for a while.

Anyone who finds damage that may have been caused by this car is asked to call Oshkosh police at (920) 236-5700.
