DUI Checkpoint Nets At Least 13 Arrests

Superbowl Sunday Crackdown

( Las Vegas, NV ) – The final DUI arrest numbers aren’t in yet, but by just after sundown on Superbowl Sunday, Metro Police had already taken 13 people into custody for drunk driving – at one checkpoint alone.

Officer Beth Choat at Desert Inn and Boulder Highway said, “There’s nothing more satisfying than getting a drunk off the road.”

Also at that same checkpoint, Officer Leonard Marshall said there were 25 DUI arrests in a similar operation last year.

There were sturation patrols all over southern Nevada involving every law enforcement agency in town.

Final arrest numbers may be released later Monday.
