Milwaukee, WI - On early Saturday, Joshua Klawikowski, 21, of Waukesha traveled more than 15 miles the wrong way on West I-94 before making a u-turn and stopping near the College Ave. exit. Milwaukee County Deputy Sheriff's responded to a call that a driver was traveling the wrong way on I-94. 
When a deputy spotted Klawikowski going soutbound on northbound I-94 lanes, he attempted to block Klawikowski's passage with blazing red and blue lights, including a loud siren. But, Klawikowski slowed down and failed to stop almost crashing into the deputy. 
Other deputies were able to arrest Klawikowski after he made a u-turn near Rawson and then stopped for deputies near the College Ave. exit around 2:25 a.m.
Klawikowski is facing a felony charge for reckless driving endangering safety and operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). His blood concentration tested .18, more than twice the legal limit.
Klawikowski is the 30th wrong way driver taken into custody on Milwaukee County highways this year.
Shortly after, another driver was arrested by a Milwaukee County Deputy Sheriff near West I-94 on North 41 after crashing into a wall. The driver was cited for OWI.
