SEAL BEACH (AP) — Authorities in Orange County say a suspected drunk driver was arrested after colliding with a Seal Beach police car and then leading officers on a short chase.

A police statement says Seal Beach officers responding to reports of a possible drunken driver tried to conduct a traffic stop Saturday afternoon.

The driver refused to stop, then struck a center divider and a police car before colliding with two other vehicles as police gave chase, authorities said.

Officers eventually arrested a 55-year-old Mission Viejo resident. He could face charges including assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, DUI, hit and run and evading.
