A 25-year-old Island Lake man faces driving while intoxicated and hit-and-run charges after he drove the wrong way down a Wisconsin highway Sunday morning, causing a pair of crashes, authorities said.

Charles D. Brewer, of the 400 block of Newbury Drive, also is charged with reckless driving by endangering safety and driving the wrong way on a divided highway, according to the Kenosha County sheriff's office.


He was arrested at 11:19 a.m. Sunday after sheriff's deputies and rescue personnel responded to a two-vehicle rollover on the 19600 block of State Highway 50 near Bristol, Wisconsin.

Authorities said Brewer was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze east in the westbound lanes when he struck a 2017 Ford F150. The two adult occupants of the Ford F150 were not injured.

The Cruze continued east in the westbound lanes until it collided with a 2008 Chevrolet Traverse, causing it to roll on its side, sheriff's police said. The two adults and two children in the SUV were not injured.

Brewer had minor injuries and displayed evidence of intoxication, according to the sheriff's office. He was arrested and taken to the Kenosha County jail. He later posted bond and was released

Information on his next court date was not available Monday.
