A 55-year-old man from Wixom was arrested after driving the wrong way on Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Township the night of April 28.
According to Bloomfield Township police, multiple 911 calls came in for a wrong-way driver in a white Volvo traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of Telegraph Road, from Long Lake Road, at around 9 p.m.

Responding to the scene, officers saw the Volvo approaching Quarton Road still traveling the wrong way and activated their emergency lights in an effort to alert the heavy traffic headed northbound.

The Volvo passed a police cruiser at approximately 50 mph traveling southbound in the northbound lanes and continued on, nearly striking a motorcyclist, police said.

After a brief police pursuit, the driver pulled over near Country Club Drive and eventually admitted to drinking a $3.99 bottle of wine.

Following field sobriety tests, the man was arrested and transported to the Bloomfield Township Police Department. He consented to a breath test, revealing a 0.18% blood alcohol content — which is more than twice the legal limit for drivers.

The man was held overnight and was released with an appearance ticket for operating while intoxicated.
