STAFF Report

Youngstown

The Operating a Vehicle Impaired Task Force arrested five people Saturday night on charges of drunken driving.

Tracy Styka, Mahoning County OVI Task Force coordinator, said the sobriety checkpoint on Federal Street in downtown Youngstown resulted in 11 total arrests.

Styka said the average blood alcohol content for those arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated was 0.208. The legal limit for an adult 21 or older is 0.08.

“That average is higher than we’ve been running,” she said. “It was around 0.16, and we previously saw a drop to about 0.12.”

Styka said the location of the checkpoint was determined a year ago and had nothing to do with Saturday night’s Kelly Pavlik fight
