MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee County authorities have arrested a man accused of driving the wrong way down a freeway with a blood-alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit.
Sheriff's deputies responded to a call Wednesday just after midnight of a truck driving the wrong way. Authorities say the driver collided with a tow truck and exited the freeway.
Deputies stopped the driver a short time later.
They say the 52-year-old had alcohol on his breath, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.
A preliminary breath test registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.30 percent.
The tow-truck driver had swerved to avoid a head-on collision with the man, and struck the back of a semi-trailer. No injuries were reported.
The 52-year-old has been arrested on a tentative charge of first-offense driving while intoxicated.
