Labor Day patrols nab 12 impaired drivers
The Washington County Sheriffs Office increased its patrols for drunk drivers over the Labor Day holiday weekend, and the effort paid off.
Between 4 p.m. Aug. 29 and 2 a.m. Sept. 2, WCSO deputies arrested 12 drivers who were driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or a combination of both, officials said.
Deputies also looked for aggressive drivers and drivers who were speeding, following too closely or distracted while using electronic devices.
There were no traffic-related fatalities reported in Washington County during the reporting period.Add a comment
