559 DUI Arrests in Arizona in One Weekend
Arizona law-enforcement arrested 559 drivers on suspicion of drunken driving over the 2013 Memorial Day weekend. According to a report by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, officers and deputies made 13,002 stops from Thursday to Tuesday morning. Which is the fewest during that annual period since the year 2010. Law-enforcement made 499 DUI misdemeanor arrests and 60 aggravated DUI arrests. 148 out of the arrests were extreme-DUI cases. The director for the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, said the task force “didn’t meet our goal” because officers made just as many arrests as in years past while conducting fewer stops. “Our goal is to do less DUI arrests,” Gutier said.
