A Mosheim man was charged Sunday with driving under the influence-sixth offense, evading arrest and other offenses after allegedly driving in the oncoming lane of traffic on U.S. 11E (West Andrew Johnson Highway), Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Derek Turberville said in a report.

Haskell R. Charles, 52, of 620 Fish Hook Road, was "traveling westbound in the eastbound lane, causing vehicles to go off the roadway to avoid [a] head-on collision with the violator," the report said.

In addition to the other charges, he was also charged with driving on a revoked license-sixth offense, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, having no proof of insurance, failure to maintain lane, and violation of the seat belt law.

Trooper Turberville attempted a traffic stop with lights and siren on 11E near the intersection with Pottertown Road (formerly known as Bob White Trail), at Mosheim.

Charles allegedly would not pull over "until the vehicle was forced to stop by using the trooper's vehicle," the report said.

Charles refused field sobriety tests "but stated he was intoxicated," the report said. Blood was later drawn to determine Charles' blood alcohol content.

He was previously charged with DUI in November 2011, March 2006, May 2001, December 1996 and August 1993, the report said.

He was also charged with driving on a revoked license on five occasions between January 2011 and July 1991.

The amount of damage to the trooper's patrol car was not mentioned in the report.

Charles will appear today in General Sessions Court.
