The Montgomery County Police Holiday Task Force hauled in 24 drivers for DUI in a Thanksgiving Eve anti-drunk-driving operation. In all, police said, Task Force officers interacted with 291 citizens, and issued 253 traffic citations, 127 warnings, 32 equipment repair orders, 9 criminal violations, and 2 civil violations.

Among alcohol-related offenses were underage drinking and public urination. At least 5 of the drivers alleged to be driving under the influence Wednesday night, and early Thursday morning, were taken to the Bethesda 2nd District Police Station.

  1. While the high cost of a DUI case will likely discourage people from drunk driving, some people do not consider it the determining factor, evident from 5 drivers alleged to be driving under the influence in one night. If you are ever get arrested, you should look for good attorney immediately to get out from this mess. My brother is system admin at a DUI lawyer office and he often tells me how DUI cases if not fought properly can destroy your life.
