(WXYZ) — A 55-year-old Taylor man is in jail after participating in some familiar behavior Saturday.

A Michigan State Police sergeant was driving home from his shift on westbound I-94 near Telegraph when he witnessed a motorcyclist carelessly speeding and weaving heavily, all while taking both hands off the handlebars at the same time.

The sergeant pulled over the 55-year-old and conducted sobriety tests. The man failed the tests and was arrested for drunk driving.

An investigation revealed the man had 10 prior drunken driving convictions, according to MSP.

The driver refused to take any chemical tests, leaving authorities to seek a search warrant for a blood test.

Police say charges will be sought for drunken driving, driving with a revoked license and no motorcycle endorsement.
