    Around 10:30 p.m., Washington County deputies received several reports of a wrong way driver traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of I-41 in Germantown.

    Ultimately, a deputy was able to stop the vehicle just north of State Highway 167 in the village of Richfield.

    Officials confirmed the driver and lone occupant of the vehicle was Ullman.

    He appeared disoriented and confused, deputies say. Ullman was not sure where he was or what road he was on.

    Authorities contacted Ullman's family to take him home. His vehicle was towed from the scene.
