The arrests were conducted by LBPD’s Traffic Section during a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint that took place at the intersection of 7th Street and Locust Avenue from 7:00PM to 3:00AM.

The checkpoint resulted in the following:

  • 1,407 vehicles through checkpoint
  • 496 vehicles screened
  • two DUI-alcohol suspects arrested
  • 12 drivers cited for operating a vehicle while suspended/revoked

Authorities said checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.
