Suspect charged in Oakland Co. deputy's death

Sheriffs Deputy Eric Overall 50 killed in line of duty

The sheriff says he has four prior convictions for possession of marijuana and one for resisting and obstructing police.

Authorities say 50-year-old Oakland County Deputy Eric Overall was outside his squad auto after midnight Thursday preparing to deploy "stop sticks" created to deflate vehicles' tires at a Brandon Township intersection when he was hit by Berak's vehicle.

A court-appointed attorney said Berak has a history of mental health problems and is under psychiatric care. Berak's next court appearance is December 4 at 9 a.m. for a probable cause hearing.

He is now on probation and was denied bond. I am going to deny bond on this case. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.

According to investigators, Berak intentionally hit Deputy Eric Overall around 12:30 a.m. Thursday at M-15 and Seymour Lake Road while Deputy Overall was outside of his patrol auto attempting to put down stop sticks down to help end the chase.

Texas Tech defeats Texas 27-23
Carter has nine passing attempts for Texas Tech this season, though two of those went for touchdowns. But the Red Raiders intercepted a pass at the Texas Tech 31 and returned it 55 yards to the UT 14.

McKenna said video of the pursuit shows Overall deploy the stop sticks and get off to the side of the road.

Overall's death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner and the department will ask prosecutors to charge him shortly.

Overall, who lived in Genesee County, was recently married and has one adult son, police said.

Police have not released the name of the deputy but say he's a 22-year veteran of the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
