A 56-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Tuesday after he was seen driving west in the eastbound lanes of O Street at about 8 p.m., police say.

Sgt. Angela Sands said passersby pulled Kristopher Colgan out of a 2019 Chevy Camaro when he stopped at a light at 84th Street.

Sands said just before that, Colgan had struck a vehicle near 90th Street. That driver had to swerve to avoid a head-on collision.

Sands said police arrested Colgan, a transient, on suspicion of driving under suspension, DUI, negligent driving, leaving the scene of an accident and possession of drug paraphernalia. She said his blood-alcohol content tested at 0.142%, just less than the 0.15% level for an aggravated-offense DUI.
