A man accused of driving drunk was also seen heading the wrong way on US 60 in Apache Junction.

DPS reports that about 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 3 they arrested 55-year-old Jesus Rafael Ceja, on US 60 near Goldfield Road. 

Ceja was stopped after nearly hitting another vehicle while driving the wrong direction on the freeway. 

He was already on probation for a DUI conviction just two years ago, court paperwork said. DPS says he blew a .183 over two times the legal limit. 

Ceja has been charged with endangerment and extreme DUI.
