Minnesota reports DUI arrests during special enforcement

Minnesota law enforcement agencies made 2,270 DWI arrests during a two-week special enforcement period that coincided with the Labor Day holiday.

The results were reported by 317 law enforcement agencies across the state for arrests that occurred between Aug. 17 and Sept. 3, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, which coordinated the Safe & Sober effort.

Last year, Minnesota reported a record 41,842 DWI arrests.

At the same time, the state had a record low 166 alcohol-related traffic deaths, the Department of Public Safety said.
