Huron Township police stepped-up their patrols during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday, resulting in four operating while intoxicated arrests.
Police made a total of 330 traffic stops from March 16-18 and issued 326 citations.
The enforcement period included the NCAA basketball tournament, college spring break, and St. Patrick’s Day.
In addition to the four OWI arrests, 23 other arrests were made, including 12 arrests for driving on a suspended license, seven arrested for misdemeanor warrants, two arrested on felony warrants, and two on miscellaneous misdemeanor warrants.
“The goal of this enforcement was to provide high visibility traffic enforcement throughout Huron Township. This was a proactive approach towards solving a problem before it happened,” said Public Saftey Director Everette Robbins.
