Truck driver carrying potentially dangerous chemicals charged with DUI

ESCAMBIA COUNTY   --  An 18 wheeler full of potentially dangerous chemical and a half empty bottle of vodka.
That's what Escambia County deputies say they discovered when they pulled over a tanker truck that was spotted driving erratically on Highway 29.
Deputies say the driver, 35 year old  Alex Kozlov, was drinking from the vodka bottle when they pulled him over.

He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.
The tanker truck was full of a chemical known as Maleic Anhydride, which is used for making resins.
Deputies say Kozlov was just passing through the area, but he's now been booked on DUI charges.
