On Saturday, a 34-year-old Athens man was pulled over when an officer saw him driving with a missing wheel. The officer reports that the car was sparking and releasing a lot of smoke from the right side and then noticed that the driver had been driving on the rim. When the officer asked him to get out of the vehicle, the driver almost fell down and the officer also reports a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. The driver was arrested and charged with DUI.
