A Rocky Point man was arrested for allegedly driving drunk and sideswiping a Suffolk County deputy sheriff’s patrol car while the deputy was performing a traffic stop, authorities said.

Vincent Rudolf was driving his Plymouth Neon on Route 25A in Miller Place when the crash occurred near the corner of Miller Place Road on Wednesday, authorities said.

“Sir, we’re at Wendy’s,” the 23-year-old reportedly told the deputy, who pulled him over in a McDonald’s parking lot, after Rudolf overheard the deputy advising his dispatcher of his location, according to authorities.

Rudolf was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.16, double the legal limit of 0.08 percent, authorities said.

Rudolf was charged with driving while intoxicated. A judge set his bail at $1,000.
