NEW MIDDLETOWN

Police will be increasing patrols for the July 4 holiday, to look out for drunk drivers.

Chief Vincent D’Egidio said last week a woman was arrested for driving under the influence and was also texting while she was driving. She had a blood alcohol content of 0.137; the legal limit in Ohio is 0.08.

Monday at 5:30 p.m. a man was arrested for DUI after he was driving at a very slow speed, impeding traffic. His BAC was 0.231. D’Egidio said he was concerned because that is a time of day where there is a lot of traffic on the road. His department has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drinking and driving, he said.
