MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Authorities say an Idaho middle school teacher drove drunk the wrong way for miles on Interstate 90 in Montana. Charging documents filed by prosecutors say vehicles headed in the right direction Monday night were forced to maneuver out of the driver’s way. The driver continued the wrong way even after a sheriff’s deputy turned a spotlight on the car.

The affidavit by Deputy Missoula County Attorney Suzy Boylan says 55-year-old Thomas Philip Mentzer’s blood-alcohol level was .202. The legal limit to drive is .08. The Missoulian reports Mentzer is from Salmon. The affidavit says he admitted he was intoxicated and he has been charged with felony criminal endangerment and aggravated driving under the influence, a misdemeanor. Missoula County Justice of the Peace Karen Orzech set his bail at $5,000.
