Driver Arrested For DUI After Traveling Wrong Way On Freeway For 11 Miles
The Washington State Patrol is reporting that a 40-year old Federal Way man was arrested Sunday morning (Sept. 12) for investigation of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) after several 911 callers alerted troopers that he was driving the wrong way on the I-90 freeway.
The first 911 call occurred at 1:53am Sunday morning, and in total, eleven 911 callers followed, updating the State Patrol communications center of the vehicle’s exact location. With that information, communications officers were able to dispatch troopers in the area.
Troopers apprehended the driver without incident and immediately detected that the driver was under the influence of alcohol.
The wrong way driver was booked into the King County Jail on charges of DUI.
