Drunk driver drove 17 miles the wrong way, cops say

A Nebraska man was allegedly drunk behind the wheel when he drove 17 miles the wrong way on an interstate in Connecticut, according to police.

Troopers say 37-year-old Kory Langan's SUV narrowly missed multiple State Police vehicles during the incident.

As Langan's vehicle approached Exit 18 along I-395, Troopers deployed stop sticks, which deflated the SUV's tires, but he continued south until a Trooper's vehicle maneuvered in front of him.

After Langan struck the vehicle's bumper, he stopped.

State Police charged him with reckless driving, driving the wrong way on a divided highway, failure to obey the signal of an officer, second-degree reckless endangerment, and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Langan was released and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 12 in Norwich.
