An alleged drunken driver was arrested after he drove the wrong way on the Long Island Expressway in his hometown of Medford early Monday morning, Suffolk County police said.

Highway Patrol officers responded to 911 calls of a Honda Civic travelling westbound in the eastbound HOV lane of the LIE at Exit 64 and pulled the driver over between exits 59 and 58 at 2:35 a.m., police said.

The suspect, 51-year-old Steven Brill, was charged with driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.

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