According to police, the driver crashed into a pole in Cleveland before taking the opposite lanes of the Interstate through to Bratenahl.

CLEVELAND — Cleveland Police stopped a man early this morning for driving west through the city in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90. 

The incident happened just after 6:00 a.m. According to Cleveland Police's Sergeant Jennifer Ciaccia, the driver, Justin Deshawn Mitchell, hit a light pole near Waterloo Road in Cleveland before getting onto the Interstate, but headed in the wrong direction.
