Troopers at 11:30 a.m. received multiple "report every dangerous driver immediately" complaints of a driver heading south on the Seward Highway near Indian who passed in no-passing zones, passed on corners and forced other drivers to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision.

Girdwood troopers stopped the suspect at Mile 92 Seward Highway and identified a 76-year-old Homer man as the driver. Troopers said multiple witnesses stopped to provide troopers with information while the man was pulled over. Troopers arrested the Homer man for reckless driving.
