MILWAUKEE - Law enforcement officials Monday were investigating another wrong way driving case.

This time, the driver allegedly traveled a long way before authorities could stop him.

Sheriff's investigators say that Joshua Klawikowski, 21, was heading south in the northbound lanes on I-94 at the Marquette Interchange.

He didn't stop until I-94 at College Avenue.

According to the Sheriff's Department, Klawikowski had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system as he traveled toward Racine County.

Deputies say he didn't stop after they tried pulling him over, and even drove parallel to him.  Klawikowski eventually pulled over.

The Milwaukee County District Attorney was expected to press charges soon in the case.

Klawikowski is allegedly the 30th wrong-way driver in Milwaukee County in 2012.

DOT cameras caught Erin Salmon allegedly going the wrong way before she slammed into a Milwaukee Police officer in September.

Milwaukee County is installing sensors that would detect wrong way drivers and alert authorities to keep everyone safe.
