MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- A judge has given a trucker a suspended sentence for
driving a tractor-trailer the wrong way on Interstate 90.
   Missoula County District Judge Ed McLean on Wednesday sentenced Darrell
Shepherd to three years in prison for a criminal endangerment conviction. McLean
Sus[ended the sentence except for the 148 days that Shepherd has already served.
   The Montana Highway Patrol stopped Shepherd Oct. 31 after receiving a report
of a tractor-trailer traveling the wrong way on I-90 near the Montana-Idaho borders.
   His truck allegedly knocked over a sign and forced several vehicles to swerve
 out of the way.
   Shepherd is a 48-year-old California resident. Court documents did not list
his hometown.
   The Missoulian reports  that as a condition of Shepherd’s probation, he
 can't drive commercially without permission from the court.
