Police have arrested a 19-year-old Indianapolis man after he drove the wrong way on the interstate.

Hancock County Sheriff Brad Burkhart confirmed De'Ante Parrish was going the wrong way on eastbound I-70 just east of Greenfield on Wednesday, June 5th while driving a black Chevrolet Camaro. Police say he was not impaired and is now facing reckless driving charges.
