A 22-year-old Macomb County man accused of fatally hitting an Oakland County Sheriff's Deputy during a police chase on Thanksgiving Day was arraigned by video Saturday in Macomb County.
Thursday at M-15 and Seymour Lake Road while Deputy Overall was outside of his patrol car attempting to put down stop sticks down to help end the chase.
The chase started according to police when Berak walked into the Lapeer County Sheriff's Department and made threats Wednesday night.
Because of what he had said, police deemed there was an imminent danger to the public.
The pursuit started there and went westbound to I-69 to southbound to M-15 into Oakland County. After Berak's vehicle struck Deputy Overall, the suspect's car rolled over and Berak was arrested on-scene.
