Twin Falls County Reports Six DUI Arrests In 48 Hours
Does Twin Falls County have a major drinking and driving issue? I went through the county booking reports for the period beginning May 18 through May 21 (Friday to Sunday), and was surprised by the results.
Within a span of roughly 48 hours--the first driving under the influence was logged at approximately 3 AM Friday, and the last weekend ticket issued at 2 AM Sunday--there were six arrests for DUI in the county alone, with all being first time offences, according to the reports.
The youngest arrest involved at 19-year-old Hispanic male on Saturday. Four of the six cases involved those in the 35-55 age group, and all but one violator was male.
Arrest records are made available and updated daily at the Twin Falls County Sheriff's website.
