Police arrested a man they said was driving the wrong way on Interstate 244 near Memorial early Tuesday.

Shortly before 2 a.m. an officer spotted a red pickup headed east in the westbound lanes. Police said they were able to get it to exit at Mingo where they stopped it.  

They identified the driver as Justin Beal, 26, of Lamesa, Texas.

Beal told police he was following directions on his phone and got turned around. Police said they noticed an odor of alcohol and conducted a field sobriety test. They booked Beal into the Tulsa County jail on complaints of DUI, driving the wrong way on a one-way street and not wearing a seat belt.

Jail records show Beal has a court appearance set for October 6.
