LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada Highway Patrol says a driver was arrested for DUI after almost hitting three troopers while leaving Burning Man.
The music and art festival ends on Monday, a week after it began on Aug. 25 in the northern Nevada desert.
NHP says the driver was trying to pass "numerous vehicles" when he almost hit the troopers.
Authorities urge if you are impaired, don’t drive.
