A Pontiac man is facing charges after allegedly kicking an Oakland County Sheriff’s deputy who was helping probe a shooting that wounded the man’s passenger.

Officials found the driver’s car overturned near Cesar E. Chavez and Baldwin after reports of gunshots about 2:30 a.m. Monday, investigators said in a statement.

Deputies learned the 21-year-old woman in the front seat had been shot in the chest during a fight outside the 90 block of West Tennyson, according to the release.

While she underwent treatment at McLaren-Oakland Hospital, the 21-year-old man who had driven the flipped car was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, authorities reported.

He was transported to the hospital for medical clearance, but while lying on a gurney, the driver “managed to kick a deputy in the face,” sheriff’s officials said.

The motorist was held at the Oakland County Jail. The suspect in the earlier shooting has not been found.
