BETHPAGE, New York — A Long Island woman is facing numerous charges following her arrest for allegedly driving the wrong way while intoxicated on a busy highway.

Nassau County police say they got numerous 911 calls early Friday about a southbound vehicle on the northbound Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway.

Officers engaged the vehicle head-on and safely brought it to a stop in Bethpage. There were no reports of accidents from the incident.

Maureen Hamilton of East Rockaway was arrested on charges that include driving while intoxicated and reckless endangerment.

The 58-year-old woman was released without bail following her arraignment in First District Court in Hempstead. Her attorney did not immediately return a telephone call for comment.
