Bedford police say 28-year-old Brooks Elliott was allegedly spotted by Bedford police traveling south in the northbound lanes of SR-37, and then turned east into the westbound lanes of US-50.

Police caught up with him in the Wendy's parking lot and, when they made contact, say they noticed he had been drinking.

His passenger, 42-year-old Tamara Moore was charged with public intoxication.
