Indian American Shashikantbhai Patel, 41, of Bel Air, Maryland was charged with DWI after he was caught with an open container while driving the wrong way on a state road, according to a Patch.com report.

According to the report, Patel had an open container in the Toyota Camry when he was stopped and firefighters reportedly had to set up a roadblock to stop him from continuing to drive.

Patel was then taken into custody by the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, where Immigration officials placed a detainer on him and told WSYR-TV that they may deport him.

Records show that Patel was booked on Friday, March 30 and remains incarcerated on a charge of aggravated DWI.
