An alleged drunken driver was arrested Wednesday night after he was spotted driving the wrong way on the Long Island Expressway, Suffolk County police said.

Warren Levine was driving a 2010 Honda westbound in the eastbound lanes of the LIE at 10:30 p.m. when an officer spotted the 62-year-old Medford man on the entrance ramp of Route 112, police said.

“Vehicles in the eastbound lanes were forced to swerve out of the path of the Honda to avoid collisions,” police said in a news release.

Levine was charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.

He will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.
