Mount Clemens man charged after crash has five drunken driving convictions

A Mount Clemens man with five convictions for drunken driving is accused of doing it again.

John Eugene Husketh, 39, has been charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and resisting arrest, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.

Husketh was arraigned on the charges Monday in 41-B District Court in Clinton Township. A magistrate set bond at $50,000 and scheduled a June 18 court date.

Police said sheriff’s deputies were sent to a rollover accident on Interstate 94 near Shook Road in Harrison Township a little after 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Witnesses told deputies a man who was driving a silver Chrysler Sebring caused the accident and ran from the scene.

Police found the man, shirtless and running alongside the expressway.

Officers were forced to use an electrical shock device to subdue him, according to Lt. John Michalke.

Deputies suspected the man was intoxicated, but he refused to submit to sobriety tests. Police obtained a warrant and took him to the hospital where blood was drawn for drug and alcohol testing.

Michalke said Husketh has five convictions for drinking and driving-related offenses.
