Suspect charged in Oakland Co. deputy's death

Suspect charged in Oakland Co. deputy's death

He is now on probation for a prior attempted fleeing and eluding police and operating under the influence of marijuana, the attorney said.

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

Berak's probable cause conference has been scheduled at the District Court in Clarkston on December 4, at 9 a.m.

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

The following day, a funeral service will be held at the church at 11 a.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.




Just after 12:30 a.m., at the intersection of SB M-15 and Seymour Lake Road, the deputy was just outside of his patrol auto about to deploy "stop sticks" when the fleeing suspect hit the deputy and the suspect's vehicle, then rolled over.

Police say the suspect hit the deputy and the suspect's vehicle then rolled over.

The medical examiner has ruled Overall's death a homicide from blunt force trauma, police said.

The sheriff's office said the deputy, a 22-year-veteran of the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, died at the scene. He was 50-years-old. He was recently married and had one adult son.
