BRANDON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A man on drugs was dancing, hitting himself in the face and yelling at himself in an Oakland County backyard before purposely driving into a deputy's patrol vehicle, according to authorities.

Deputies were called at 1:57 p.m. Tuesday to a home at South Baldwin and Seymore Lake roads for a report of a suspicious person.

The man intentionally struck a patrol vehicle that was trying to block his exit, police said. He got out of the vehicle and tried to run, officials said.

A deputy fired his Taser at the man, but it wasn't effective, police said. A second Taser attempt allowed officials to take the man into custody.
