The MPD responded to the West Beltline Highway early Sunday morning for reports of a car heading east in the westbound lanes. An officer spotted the vehicle as he was traveling west in the westbound lanes. He activated squad lights and drove into the path of the oncoming car, hoping the driver would stop. The driver did not, and the officer swerved to avoid a collision. The officer then got behind the car, and the driver did pull over. He was cited for drunken driving and driving against traffic.
