The caller told police he noticed the man — later identified as Michael Richard Lemke — at the wheel was asleep at the intersection. When the caller knocked on the window, Lemke woke up, rolled through the intersection and struck a median.

Officers located the vehicle and blocked it to prevent it from entering traffic again.

Lemke was arrested on suspicion of first-degree felony DWI due to prior arrests.
