CANFIELD — A sobriety checkpoint in Austintown yielded two traffic citations, three charges and one arrest late Friday and early Saturday.

The Mahoning County OVI Task Force conducted the checkpoint from 10:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. at 483 N. Canfield Niles Road.

A total of 658 vehicles passed through the checkpoint with seven pulled over for further investigation.
