A Pine City man was arrested Tuesday morning after a crash involving a deputy.

The Pine County Sheriff's Office said Deputy Boston Gilderman was traveling south on Main Street from Third Avenue at about 12:41 a.m. when a truck rear-ended his squad at a high rate of speed. The sheriff's office said the crash pushed the squad onto the property of First Presbyterian Church.


The deputy and the driver of the truck, identified as Winston Lievsay, were both able to exit their vehicles but were injured.

The sheriff's office said Lievsay was combative and had to be restrained by additional officers who responded, officials said he was believed to be under the influence.

Lievsay and Gilderman were both transported to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Gilderman was later released.

The crash is under investigation.
