    Authorities say a Nebraska man who drove 17 miles in the wrong direction on a highway in Connecticut has been charged with driving while intoxicated.

    State police say officials received numerous 911 calls Saturday reporting that a SUV was traveling southbound in the northbound lane on I-395 in the town of Plainfield.

    Officials say the SUV narrowly missed multiple police vehicles before officers could deploy stop sticks to deflate three of its tires. The driver kept going, but police were able to eventually stop and arrest him.

    Police say 37-year-old Kory Langan, of Columbus, is also charged with reckless driving and other offenses.

    A person who answered the phone at a number listed for Langan told Associated Press it was the wrong number. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
