Troopers of the Florida Highway Patrol say a Seminole man drove almost eight miles the wrong direction on Interstate 275 through St. Petersburg last Monday while intoxicated and without striking another driver.

Twenty-six-year-old Nicholas Michael Sanchez is alleged to have driven his vehicle northbound in the southbound lanes of I-275 at around four o'clock in the morning. Authorities say he covered nearly eight miles, starting near 5th Avenue North and ending when St. Petersburg Police stopped him near Roosevelt Boulevard.

Sanchez was booked into Pinellas County Jail just after five o'clock that morning. He faces two charges, one for possession of a controlled substance and one for driving under the influence. He posted a $2,500 bond later that evening and was released.

Local media indicate that Sanchez has prior arrests for DUI, leaving the scene of a crash with property damage, resisting an officer without violence, battery, and criminal mischief. The final disposition of those arrests were not revealed.
