Man fleeing police charged after vehicle fatally strikes deputy

Investigators believe sheriff's deputy was run down intentionally

The Oakland County Sheriff's Department has identified the deputy who died early Thanksgiving morning as the result of a auto chase. After Berak's vehicle struck Deputy Overall, the suspect's auto rolled over and Berak was arrested on-scene.

Oakland County deputy Eric Overall was laying down "stop sticks" early Thursday morning in Brandon Township to deflate the man's tires.

According to court records from Macomb County, Berak has prior convictions for possession of marijuana and resisting officers. "I don't think he's a risk of flight, but I understand the seriousness of these charges", said Berak's attorney said during a video arraignment from 52nd Third District Court.

He is scheduled for a probable cause hearing in Clarkston District Court on December 4.

On Saturday afternoon during his arraignment, Berak was denied bond.

The chase began after a traffic stop in front of the Lapeer County Jail, where Berak allegedly told employees he wanted get one of his "son's followers" out and referred to himself as God, according to Lapeer County Sheriff Scott McKenna. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. "Our deputies at the time of this don't even know that he's there".

Overall was a 22-year veteran of the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

Because of what he had said, police deemed there was an imminent danger to the public.
