BOISE -- A Boise man was arrested Thursday after police were called to check on a possible drunk driver.

Forty-nine-year-old Christopher Boeller is charged with several felonies including aggravated assault, aggravated battery and eluding.

It all stated with a report of a drunk driver on Vista Avenue at Targee Street.

Boeller is accused of driving erratically, not stopping for officers and almost hitting a bicyclist.

Fearing for the safety of the public, officers initiated a PIT maneuver to try to stop Boeller. That is when he drove across the median into oncoming traffic before striking an SUV, which was stopped at the time.

Officers located a pipe with meth residue on Boeller during his arrest.
