The Southeastern Arizona DUI Task Force made one driving under the influence arrest during a saturation detail in the Douglas area on Sept. 23, during the Cochise County Fair weekend.

The detail was performed by the Sierra Vista Police Department, Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, Arizona Department of Public Safety, and Douglas Police Department.

In addition to the DUI arrest, the detail resulted in the following: 80 stops or contacts, 19 warnings/repair orders, nine civil speed citations, six designated drivers, 13 minor consumption/possession of alcohol arrests, two seat belt/child restraint citations, and eight miscellaneous citations/arrests.

The DUI arrest resulted in a blood draw and the blood alcohol content is not available.

With the continuous support from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Southeastern Arizona DUI Task Force reminds drivers that if you choose to drive hammered, you will get nailed. Get a designated driver, not a DUI!
