By Beth Milligan | Aug. 9, 2019

An 18-year-old Northport male was arrested Wednesday for drunk driving after rolling his jeep and blaming it on three deer.

Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputies, Northport Fire and Rescue personnel, and a Tribal Police officer responded to the scene of the accident just before midnight on North Omena Point Road. Authorities found a 2015 blue Jeep off the roadway, rolled over, resting against a tree. The driver was found near the vehicle, scratched up but not seriously hurt. He indicated he lost control of his vehicle while driving around three deer in the roadway.

The deputy began an investigation and determined the driver had been consuming alcohol prior to the crash. The driver was found to be intoxicated and was placed under arrest for suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He was lodged in the Leelanau County Jail.
