New Hampshire State Police Arrest Nine for St. Patrick’s DUI

Sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend resulted in nine arrests statewide for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) in New Hampshire, according to a recent article in the Eagle-Tribune.

The New Hampshire State Police reported that no deaths or serious injuries occurred in motor vehicle accidents in New Hampshire over the weekend and that most of those who chose to include alcohol in their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations avoided a New Hampshire DUI arrest by riding with a designated driver, taking public transportation or cabs, or choosing to hold their celebrations at home.

However, nine drivers were arrested either at sobriety checkpoints or by police patrols on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. Most of the arrests were of people who did not have a prior drunk-driving conviction on their record. The New Hampshire State Police noted that nine arrests was a much lower number than on previous St. Patrick’s Days, suggesting that people who choose to drink are making smarter choices about their transportation.

It’s always better to ride with a designated driver or find another sober way to get home if you’ve included alcohol in any celebration. DUI charges carry serious consequences, including the loss of your driving privileges.
