St. Patrick's Day DUI Arrests Way Down From Last Year

Local law enforcement agencies have declared last week's St. Patrick’s DUI Emphasis campaign a major success. The goal of the patrol was to have no serious disabling or fatal injuries as a result of impaired driving- and it was achieved!

In addition, the number of DUI arrests were down from last year. Spokane County had 26 DUI arrests this year compared to the 74 people that were arrested during the same timeframe in 2011.
