Police said that after receiving the 911 call at about 1:45 p.m., responding officers saw the westbound truck cross over a double-yellow line into the eastbound lane -- forcing the other driver to swerve to a avoid collision.

The officers then stopped the truck, determined that Gonzales was intoxicated and made the arrest, police said.
