County sees more DWI arrests this year
More people are being arrested for drunken driving this year in Washington County, the sheriff said.
There were 154 drunken-driving arrests by sheriff's deputies in the first half of this year. They are on pace to reach 250 by the end of 2010, Sheriff Bill Hutton told the County Board on Tuesday.
That is an increase over the 180 arrests in 2009 and is more than the recent high of 244 in 2007.
