( 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.
