Deputies arrived at a McDonald’s, 11097 Beach Blvd., at 3:07 a.m., and found the man, Lt. Joe Balicki said.
When authorities attempted to talk to the driver, he woke up and became uncooperative, authorities said. The man then hit an occupied patrol car, escaping the drive-through lane.
Authorities said the man drove north on Beach Boulevard, turning east on Ball Road. Deputies managed to stop his vehicle near Ball Road and Gilbert Street in Anaheim.
During the pursuit on Ball Road, an officer fired one or more shots at the driver just before Dale Street, Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Doan said.
Authorities did not confirm whether the man was shot, but Orange County District Attorney officials are investigating at the scene, as it is protocol for all officer- involved shootings, Doan said. No deputies were injured, but the driver was taken to a hospital. He is expected to survive. Upon being released from the hospital, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department arrested him on felony DUI and assault with a deadly weapon charges for ramming the patrol car.
