SUFFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A man from Suffield faces drunk driving charges after police said he nearly clipped an oncoming vehicle last week.

Jeffrey Barnett, 49, was arrested after officers received a report that he was driving erratically in his pickup.

Last Tuesday, police said he was traveling south in the northbound lane of Route 75 and almost hit a vehicle.

Officers found him and gave him a field sobriety test, which ultimately led to the charges.

Barnett was charged with operating under the influence and failure to carry a driver's license.
