Sheriff's deputies say wrong way driver too intoxicated to take breath test for alcohol


MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee County sheriff's deputies say a man driving the wrong way on a major highway was too drunk to take an alcohol breath test.

Authorities say the driver swerved around one squad car Sunday and then pulled over after a police officer positioned his squad to stop him. Authorities say the 33-year-old Milwaukee man was too intoxicated to "maintain consciousness" for the breath test. He was arrested on possible charges of recklessly endangering safety and other counts.
