KINGSPORT — A Kingsport man charged with a third offense of DUI allegedly swerved his Corvette at other motorists Monday night — forcing one into the median — then waved out his window to a deputy attempting to make a traffic stop. 

According to a Sullivan County Sheriff's Office arrest report, at approximately 10 p.m. police observed a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette on southbound John B. Dennis Highway. It was reportedly traveling 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. 

Deputies say the driver, later identified as Matthew Dykes, 48, of 6035 Woodhaven Drive, was also, "swerving in and out of traffic, cutting other vehicles off."
