The Bruce Township clerk is facing drunken driving charges after being arrested in September during which a Michigan State Police vehicle was struck.

Lt. Michael Shaw said troopers were responding to a breaking-and-entering call from an alarm company at 3 a.m. Sept. 11 at Bruce Township Hall when they discovered Susan Brockmann sitting in her vehicle.

As the troopers were trying to approach Brockmann, she reversed her car into the police vehicle, they said.

Shaw said Brockmann failed a breathalyzer test and was taken to the Macomb County Jail. Her blood-alcohol level was more than 0.17, Shaw said.

Brockmann was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

It is unclear why Brockmann was at Township Hall at such a late hour, Shaw said.

Her next court appearance is set for Nov. 24 in Romeo.
