MILTON, Ga. — A Milton man was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and failure to maintain lane May 10 after officers pursued him through neighborhoods. 

The driver was observed crossing the center line twice, according to the police report. While the officer followed the driver, he attempted to turn into another neighborhood, but it had a gated entrance and he was forced to turn around. 

The officer then conducted a traffic stop. 

The man said he turned into the first neighborhood to avoid the officer because he “did not like blue and red lights” and had been to jail recently. 

According to the report, the man showed signs of intoxication and was arrested for DUI-drugs.
