State police arrest wrong-way driver for DWI

NASHUA - A man driving the wrong way on the Everett Turnpike was arrested Thursday morning and charged with DWI.

Trooper D.C. Myer was patrolling the highway just after 1 a.m. when he saw a vehicle driving north in the southbound lane, between exits 7 and 8.

Myer positioned his cruiser to force the wrong-way driver off the highway and onto Exit 8. He then stopped the vehicle on Somerset Parkway, west of the turnpike, and after a brief investigation arrested the driver, identified as David Smith, 44, of Nashua.

Smith was taken to state police Troop B barracks in Bedford where he was booked for DWI.

What's next: Smith is to be arraigned March 20 in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
