A Lakeland man was arrested Saturday night on DUI charges after a hit and run and driving the wrong-way. 

Troopers said Tyson McMorrow, 36, was driving recklessly westbound on I-4 around 10 p.m. Saturday. 

When troopers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the Dodge Journey, they said McMorrow drove through the median and cable barrier into the eastbound lanes of I-4, still traveling westbound. 

McMorrow then stopped his vehicle westbound on the inside shoulder of eastbound I-4, and when troopers approached him, they said he drove off to the outside shoulder and stopped. 

Troopers were then able to make contact with McMorrow and he was arrested and charged with DUI, DUI property damage, leaving the scene of a crash, and driving on the wrong side of a divided highway. 

He was transported to the Polk County jail.
