September 14, 2010
Troopers arrested a Federal Way man near Issaquah early Sept. 12 for driving under the influence after other drivers said he drove the wrong way on Interstate 90.
The initial 911 call to the Washington State Patrol occurred at 1:53 a.m. Sept. 12; 11 callers updated dispatchers about the location of the vehicle as the driver headed west in the eastbound lanes.
Troopers stopped the 40-year-old driver near Exit 20, the High Point exit just east of Issaquah. Troopers apprehended the driver without incident and determined him to be under the influence of alcohol.
The driver — identified by troopers as Totta T. Leota — was booked into the King County Jail on DUI charges.
