Wrong-way-driver call leads to DUI arrest

A Greenwood man was arrested after another motorist told police he saw a motorist driving the wrong way on U.S. 31 in Franklin.

Barry R. Myers, 50, was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence after a test showed his blood-alcohol content was about twice the legal limit to be considered too intoxicated to drive.

Police received a call about 2:15 a.m. Tuesday that a driver was traveling south in the northbound lanes of U.S. 31 near Commerce Drive in Franklin. A Johnson County sheriff’s deputy spotted the car on the south side of the city, where he saw the vehicle cross the center line and swerve back and forth, according to the police report.
