Investigators said four drunken drivers were arrested at the same location in Montgomery County overnight, and one nearly struck a deputy at the scene.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, deputies stopped a driver on the North Freeway near Oakwood because he was wanted in connection with assaulting his 15-year-old daughter. He was intoxicated when deputies pulled him over, officials said.

After the arrest, the deputy was about to get into his car when another driver approached the scene and slammed into the rear of the patrol car, almost hitting the deputy.

That driver also failed a field sobriety test and was taken into custody. But it didn't end there.

Two other drivers who tried to maneuver around the police barricade at the scene were also arrested for driving drunk. All four suspected drunk drivers were taken to jail.
