SALINE, Mich. — Authorities released dash cam that shows a 24-year-old DUI suspect struggle with police after he was pulled over.

On Christmas Day Saline Officer Ashley Kofahl stopped John Craigmile, who got out of his car and began to fight with her as backup officer Dennis Gruschow arrived on the scene, according to The video shows Gruschow enter the fight, but together the two officers were unable to deter Craigmile, who threw punches and used Gruschow's flashlight as a weapon, the police report said.
