Man arrested after driving wrong way on LIE

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police on Long Island say they arrested a man after he was driving westbound on the eastbound lanes of the Long Island Expressway early Monday morning.

Several 911 calls to Suffolk County Police reported a 2006 Honda Civic was on the wrong side of the highway in the HOV lane at Exit 64 in Medford.

Police officers responded and were able to pull over the vehicle between exists 59 and 58 at around 2:30 a.m.

Steven Brill, 51 of Medford, was arrested. He is charged with driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.

It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Brill was expected to be arraigned later Monday at First District Court in Central Islip.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
