Vermont State Police charged a New Jersey man with drunken driving after receiving a call about a car being driven backward on Interstate 89.

Police say they received a report late Friday night of a motorist driving erratically - and at one point driving in reverse - in the southbound lanes in Berlin, south of Montpelier.

When police caught up, they arrested a 46-year-old man.

Police said a preliminary breath test indicated the man's blood alcohol content was nearly three times the legal limit.
