A man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of driving under the influence after police caught up to him driving in the opposite direction on Interstate 25.

Alexander Nicoulin was reportedly surprised to hear that he was in Colorado Springs and allegedly told arresting officers he thought he was in Denver, police said.

A vehicle was reported traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of I-25 and South Academy Boulevard about 2:40 a.m.

According to police reports, the vehicle was seen going over the speed limit when an officer pulled up and tried to get the driver's attention.

The driver, identified as Alexander Nicoulin, allegedly did not respond. A second patrol joined the pursuit and Nicoulin was detained without further incident, police said.
