NEW YORK — Authorities say a suspected drunken driver head-butted a state trooper and his wife threw her shoes and underwear in protest after they were pulled over on Long Island.

New York State Police say 38-year-old Michael Nelson struck the trooper several times while being arrested on an intoxicated driving charge around 1:30 a.m. Sunday on the Southern State Parkway in Hempstead.

Nelson’s 29-year-old wife was arrested after police say she got out of their 2017 Mercedes-Benz and tried obstructing his arrest.

Police say the combativeness continued at a police station. In addition to throwing objects, troopers say Alexandra Nelson was spitting at them.

A lawyer for the couple says the charges “are quite overblown.” Lawyer Marc Gann says troopers escalated the situation and that there’s “much more to the story.”
