CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a man who allegedly was driving the wrong way on a freeway in Chandler was found asleep in his vehicle before being arrested.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say 39-year-old Jorge Dominguez of Tucson was spotted going the wrong way on Interstate 10 around 2 a.m. Tuesday. They say Dominguez pulled his vehicle onto the shoulder of the freeway and a Gila River police officer found him asleep at the wheel.

DPS officials say it was determined that Dominguez showed signs of impairment and he was booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of aggravated DUI. It was unclear Tuesday afternoon if Dominguez has a lawyer yet.
