A highway patrol officer stopped and arrested Warren Levine, 62, of Medford, at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday near Route 112 in Medford.

Authorities charged Levine with driving while intoxicated, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.

He was expected to be arraigned on Thursday. The name of his attorney was not immediately known.
