COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A man was arrested for driving under the influence after troopers say he hit two cruisers in Summit County Tuesday night.
A sheriff’s deputy had pulled over a car on Arlington Road near Krumroy Road with the help of a Springfield Township officer just after 9 p.m.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said James W. Aronhalt, 44, was driving his truck south and didn’t stop or move over for the traffic stop. He hit the deputy’s cruiser, pushing it into the other police car, troopers said.
All of the officers were outside of their cars at the time. The highway patrol said both cruisers had their emergency lights activated.
Aronhalt was arrested and taken to the Springfield Police Department, where he refused to take a breathalyzer test, troopers said. He was charged with operating a vehicle while impaired and failure to maintain an assured clear distance. He was also charged with refusing a chemical test since he has at least one OVI conviction within the last 20 years.
