Drunken driving crackdown results in 22 arrests

May 18, 2009

Twenty-two more drunken drivers were arrested on Milwaukee area roads as part of a cooperative effort among 13 law enforcement agencies.

Many of the officers participating in the Southeast Wisconsin Drunk Driving Task Force enforcement activities Friday said many of the arrests coincided with "happy hour," according to a news release from Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office.

Four of the 22 arrests were made in Wauwatosa, Wauwatosa police Lt. Tim Sharpee said.

In addition to the drunken driving arrests, 126 citations were issued by task force agencies for traffic violations.

The task force will hold its next drunken-driving enforcement effort Saturday night. Agencies are giving residents a heads up in hopes they will stay off the road if they have been drinking.
