Police: Drunk cabbie nabbed going wrong way

? Just weeks after the tragic wrong-way crash that killed eight on the Taconic State Parkway, police say they arrested a drunk Bronx man for driving the wrong way on the same road.

Investigators say Gregorio Pena, 44, was driving an out-of-service livery cab when he was pulled over late Wednesday night.

State police say they spotted Pena driving north in the southbound lanes near Underhill Road.

Pena was arrested and is now facing charges of aggravated DWI. Police say there were no passengers in his car at the time of the incident and that no one was injured.
