Lawmen STEP up traffic patrols, several people arrested for intoxication

EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Increased patrols and higher law enforcement visibility are believed to have been keys in helping curb the number of people arrested for intoxication offenses during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

The Nacogdoches jail administrator reports four people were arrested and charged for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and five people were arrested and charged for public intoxication (PI).

In Angelina County, two people were arrested and charged with boating while intoxicated (BWI), four for DWI and five for PI.
