Guilty plea from wrong way drunk driver

BEREA, OH (WOIO) - A Westlake man who drove the wrong way while drunk on the ramp from I-71 to Bagley Road pleaded guilty in a Berea courtroom Thursday.

Georges Abboud drove drunk on that ramp and struck a Middleburg Heights police officer head-on back in February.

Officer Randy Cowie survived the crash.

That was not Abboud's first wrong-way drive on I-71.

In 2009, Abboud drove the wrong direction on the interstate for almost a mile before being stopped. He refused to cooperate in any way and when an officer tried to fingerprint him, he bit the officer on the hand.

A sentencing date has not yet been set.
