A Medford man was arrested Monday morning after he was allegedly drunk behind the wheel when cops found him driving the wrong way on the Long Island Expressway for several miles, Suffolk County police said.

Steven Brill, 51, is awaiting arraignment Jan. 13 on driving while intoxicated and reckless driving charges at First District Court in Central Islip.

Police said they received several calls around 2:30 a.m. reporting that a 2006 Honda Civic was driving west in the eastbound lanes of the Long Island Expressway near Exit 64 in Medford.

Two Highway Patrol officers eventually caught up with Brill between exits 59 and 58 in Ronkonkoma, where they were able to pull him over. Cops said he was arrested at the scene and charged with drunken and reckless driving.

Brill was being held overnight in police custody at the Sixth Precinct in Selden and was to appear in court on Monday for arraignment.
