The Denver police were busy this weekend with 23 persons suspected of DUI during St. Patrick’s Day patrols. The arrests took place between Friday andSunday as part of the saturated patrols targeted during St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Authorities said six people were arrested Friday, nine Saturday and eight on Sunday. These elevated patrols will continue on through the early morning on Wednesday, as St. Patrick’s Day officially falls on Tuesday.
The official Twitter account of the Denver police department tweeted out “Keep designating those sober drivers, Denver” and let’s hope the drivers heed their warning.
