Members of the Maryland State Police stopped 29 motorists during a Frederick County DUI “saturation patrol” recently, searching for evidence that any of the drivers were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) or possibly committing another crime or traffic violation, according to a recent article in the Frederick News-Post. The patrol was conducted along a stretch of U.S. 15 in Frederick County and lasted from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. over a weekend night.
Four officers conducted Frederick County saturation patrol. Of the 29 people stopped, three were put through field sobriety tests so the officers could get a better sense of whether or not to arrest them on suspicion of drunk driving. Only one of the three was arrested for driving under the influence.
In addition to the one arrest made on suspicion of DUI, the officers arrested another individual whom they say had a warrant in Queen Anne’s County. They also issued 17 tickets for various motor vehicle violations, like speeding, and gave 23 written warnings. Finally, the officers gave out three safety equipment repair orders during the saturation patrol.
