MILWAUKEE -- Yet another wrong-way driver on Milwaukee-area freeways as a sheriff's deputy pulled over a woman driving westbound on eastbound Interstate 794 early Thursday morning. 

The woman did not have her headlights on as she drove near James Lovell Ave. just before 2 a.m. 

The deputy saw the vehicle coming towards him and positioned his squad to block the vehicle.  The woman did then pull over.

The driver is a 27-year-old woman from Greenfield.  She had a 0.17 blood-alcohol level and is now facing first offense OWI as well as a felony count of recklessly endangering safety.
