GILLETTE (WNE) — A 22-year-old man was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol at about 5:20 a.m. Wednesday after multiple people reported him driving for miles on the wrong side of the interstate.
He was called in on the interstate near Rozet and a Sheriff’s deputy found and stopped the man on Interstate 90 near mile marker 132, near Wyodak. He had been driving west in the eastbound lanes of I-90 and four separate people called him in, said Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds.
When contacted, there were alcohol containers in the truck and the 22-year-old driver admitted to drinking. He said he didn’t remember how he got onto the wrong side of the interstate or why he stayed on the interstate so long.
He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested, Reynolds said.
