In an effort to combat impaired driving in our area over the Fourth of July Holiday weekend, Louisiana State Police Troop D participated in a nationwide effort titled “Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest.”
Troopers conducted 2 DWI checkpoints and beefed up patrols over the holiday weekend. As a result, Troop D troopers arrested 31 people for DWI over the holiday period throughout the troop area. This includes 1 person arrested at a checkpoint conducted Friday, July 1, and 5 people arrested at a checkpoint conducted Monday, July 4. These checkpoints were conducted in cooperation with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office.
