Cops: Drunken man repeatedly backed into sergeant's car
Suffolk police say an Amityville man was arrested for DWI after he repeatedly backed into a sergeant's car during a traffic stop and then led police on a pursuit.
Police say the sergeant pulled over 26-year-old Wymann Wiggins at around 4 a.m. in a parking lot on Route 25 by Kings Park Road in Commack. When the sergeant stepped out of his vehicle, Wiggins allegedly backed into the police car several times before he fled the scene.
The suspect was located a short time later on Route 25, and officers say they attempted to pull Wiggins over, but he fled.
Officers deployed so-called "stop sticks" on Route 25 by Manor Road to puncture the tires on Wiggins' vehicle. He crashed on Longfellow Drive in Huntington Station, but fled on foot, police say. Wiggins was eventually arrested after a foot pursuit.
Wiggins is now facing a slew of charges, including felony driving while intoxicated, unlawfully fleeing an officer, leaving the scene of an accident, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, and several counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance. Police did not say what substance Wiggins allegedly had in his possession.
Wiggins is due to be arraigned in Central Islip court on Jan. 4.
