Michigan police officer uses patrol car to stop wrong-way driver

A Michigan police officer was in the right place at the right time Thursday to stop a sleeping driver headed the wrong way down a major highway.

The Wyoming Police Department told FOX17 that Officer Tony Jacob was driving on U.S. 131 around 2:45 a.m. when he spotted the vehicle.

Lt. Eric Wiler told FOX17 that without Jacob's quick actions, the wrong-way vehicle "most certainly would have hit another vehicle head-on."

The driver, who reportedly hadn't slept for 40 hours, was cited for reckless driving, and there were no injuries.
