POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a New Jersey man was driving drunk and on a fast-food run when he tried to elude police and eventually collided with two police cars.

Police responding to reports of a possible drunken driver in Point Pleasant Beach saw 38-year-old Donald Wilson Jr. leaving a McDonald’s parking lot early Tuesday.

Authorities say the Point Pleasant man swerved repeatedly as he headed northbound on Route 35 and refused to stop for police. Wilson eventually went back to the restaurant where they say he hit a telephone pole and two police cars before he was arrested.

Wilson and some officers involved in the crashes were treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

Wilson faces numerous charges, including eluding and drunken driving. It wasn’t known if he’s retained an attorney.
