Minnesota State Patrol reports hundreds of drunk driving arrests over St. Pat’s weekend

ST. PAUL – Driving combined with booze never works out, and law enforcement in Minnesota proved that this past weekend, stopping and charging hundreds with drunk driving.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, extra DWI (driving while intoxicating) patrols for St. Patrick’s Day weekend resulted in the arrest of 495 motorists for DWI, according to preliminary reports from Minnesota law enforcement agencies.

Officials said Tuesday that as of 9 AM Monday there were 420 arrests, with an additional 75 arrests between 9 a.m. Monday and 6 a.m. Tuesday.

“Driving drunk puts the driver and everyone else on the road in danger,” says Sgt. Jesse Grabow of the Minnesota State Patrol. “There is no reason to get behind the wheel when you have had too much to drink. Always plan ahead for a sober ride.”
