A motorist who had been reported as driving recklessly was arrested last month after he did not respond to New Albany police officers' requests to exit his vehicle.

At 11:04 a.m. March 31, officers were dispatched to state Route 161 eastbound on a report that the vehicle hit a concrete median and was weaving.

According to the report, the driver didn't stop when officers tried pulling him over.

He then drove across a grass median and almost went into westbound traffic on Route 161 before the vehicle hit a guardrail near the U.S. Route 62 overpass.

When officers approached the vehicle, the driver wouldn't open his doors or unlock them, the report said.

Officers broke windows to get into the vehicle, and the driver struggled to listen to them and didn't know what was happening, according to the report.

Officers found a small plastic pill bottle filled with circular white pills.

The driver was arrested for OVI, failure to comply, reckless driving and failure to wear a safety belt.
