CONNECTICUT -

State police say they have arrested a man who drove on the wrong side of the road for 17 miles.

Police say they received reports of a car driving south in the northbound lanes of I-395 in Plainfield around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Kory Langan, of Nebraska, is now facing charges that include reckless driving.

Police say Langan's car nearly hit several state police cars. Officers were able to stop Langan after putting down stop strips, which deflated three of the car's tires.

Langan will be in court next month.
