Deputies: Typical weekend despite St. Patrick's holiday


The Elkhart County Sheriff's Office says despite some early Saint Patrick's Day celebrations, it was a typical weekend for deputies.

On Saturday, they conducted a DUI checkpoint. Deputies say, 163 cars went through it, but there weren't too many OWI arrests.

One person was reportedly taken in for possession of marijuana. There were several other citations issues as well. "Which is a good thing," says Undersheriff Sean Holmes. "Hopefully, people are getting the message that they shouldn't be out drinking and driving."

In addition to the checkpoint, Holmes says the sheriff's office also had patrols out Friday night.
