WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -

A Waterford man was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after a passenger in his vehicle screamed obscenities out the window as they drove past police.

Police say officers were conducting a traffic stop early Saturday along Highland Rd. when Benjamin Jonas drove past, and a passenger cussed out the window.

Officers stopped Jonas' car several blocks away. His passenger denied the yelling at officers.

Jonas faces a drunken driving charge.

The 34-year-old Jonas was arraigned on Saturday and remains in the Oakland County jail.

Waterford Township police Sgt. Chester Bartle says the passenger received a disorderly conduct citation and has up to 10 days to voluntarily appear in court for his arraignment.
