A Boise man has been arrested for DUI after being accused of driving the wrong way on I-184 and almost hitting an officer.

The officer turned on his lights and applied hard braking. The vehicle that was headed the wrong way swerved around the officer and continued driving.

Police were able to stop the driver under the Emerald overpass.

The driver, identified as Justin Greer, 21, of Boise, failed a breath test with results of .266/.260. Greer also had a suspended driver’s license.
