Police said a Madison man was arrested on the city's east side Saturday after nearly hitting a K-9 squad officer's vehicle.

The Madison Police Department said 41-year-old Christopher J. Huff was driving the wrong way onto a Beltline exit ramp at Highway 51 but swerved to avoid a head-on collision.

Huff fishtailed, spun 180 degrees and headed back toward Highway 51, according to the report.

The officer stopped Huff's vehicle and arrested him on suspicion of fourth-offense operating while intoxicated and driving with a revoked license, police said.
