Local Law Enforcement Sees Increase In DWI Arrests Over Holiday Weekend

The Amarillo Police Department is reporting it made 10 DWI arrests over the fourth of July holiday.

That’s five more than last year and six more than in 2019. The Department also saw 200 more calls this year about fireworks, but only three citations were written.

The APD is currently short handed because of training.

Randall County says they didn’t see that much of an increase in DUI arrests and the rest of the weekend was pretty quiet/.

The Sheriffs Office there says they’re getting ready for Mud Mania while The APD is getting ready for the Labor Day weekend.
