Colorado Police Departments Make 355 DUI Arrests Over St Patrick’s Day Weekend

By Mary Ann

Law enforcement agencies throughout Colorado made 355 arrests for DUI this past weekend.

The Colorado State Patrol and 58 local police and sheriff’s departments took part in their yearly “Heat Is On” campaign over the St Patrick’s Day weekend. Between 6:00 pm Friday and 3:00 am Monday, the State Patrol alone made 106 DUI arrests.

The state of Colorado relies on the 0.08 blood alcohol content (BAC) national standard to define a driver as per-se DUI.

The Colorado State Patrol reported five traffic fatalities over the weekend. It is unknown yet how many of those deaths involved alcohol.
