COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — A Lehigh Acres man was arrested for almost causing a head-on collision with a Collier County Sheriff's Office unmarked patrol car.

Deputies said the driver Euripides Plana traveled towards the unmarked car on I-75, nearly causing a collision.

The deputy immediately pulled Plana over. Deputies said Plana told them he had trouble steering.

According to the Collier County Sheriff's Office, Plana had a Heineken bottle in the car, and his driver's license was suspended from a previous DUI.

Deputies said his license from the previous DUI was suspended over a decade ago.

Once Plana was taken to Naples Jail Center, deputies found two small baggies with white powdered substance on him.

Plana is facing multiple charges.
