MILWAUKEE-–Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a wrong way driver traveling southbound on I-43 in the northbound lanes at 2:20 a.m.

A squad car, with lights and siren activated, drove parallel to the vehicle in an attempt to pull him over. When the driver did not stop a deputy attempted to get his attention by shining a spotlight into the vehicle. Still, the driver did not acknowledge him or the deputy.

As the driver neared Oakwood Road, he suddenly made a U-turn in traffic and headed northbound.

A deputy stopped the driver, 21-year-old Joshua Klawikowski of Waukesha, just south of College Avenue.

Klawikowski was arrested for his first OWI and tested a .18 on the intoximeter, over twice the legal limit.

Klawikowksi traveled the wrong way for about 15.5 miles.

He faces up to ten years in prison.
