A man from Louisiana was arrested in Graves County early Sunday morning when a deputy saw him driving in the wrong lane.

A Graves County deputy was traveling northbound on St Rt 1241 just north of Folsomdale around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, when he noticed a truck traveling south in the northbound lane.

The deputy had to take evasive action to prevent the truck from striking his vehicle head on.

He conducted a stop on the vehicle and arrested the operator, Austin J. Davis, 21, of Louisiana, for 2 counts of wanton endangerment, 2 counts of open alcohol container, reckless driving, failure to produce insurance card and DUI.

Officials also arrested the passenger Isaiah Kaufman, 23, of Paducah, for alcohol intoxication in a public place.
