Sheriff's Deputies responded to calls around 1:45 a.m. on Thursday about a vehicle that was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of I-43 near S. 60th Street in Greenfield, that nearly struck at least three other vehicles head-on.

A witness reported that the vehicle turned around on the freeway and exited on the S. 76th Street off ramp.

The driver, 38-year-old Armando Espinoza-Hipolito of Milwaukee, pulled over and tried to walk away from his vehicle as a Milwaukee Police Officer approached him.

If convicted of the felony charge, he faces up to ten years in prison.

Espinoza-Hipolito did not have a valid driver's license.
