Orange County DUI Checkpoint Nets DUI Arrests

Orange County law enforcement agencies teamed up for a multiagency DUI checkpoint in Ocoee Friday night.  The checkpoint accounted for nearly 20 Orange County DUI arrests with another 10 arrests on a variety of other criminal charges.  The DUI checkpoint was conducted from 9 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Saturday, March 13th.

One motorist attempted to avoid the DUI checkpoint by accelerating to what officers described as a high rate of speed in an attempt to enter Florida’s Turnpike.  The driver was unsuccessful and ended up crashing his vehicle.  After a short foot chase, the driver was arrested and was later found to have almost three pounds of marijuana in his vehicle. 

About 150 personnel were on duty for the event, with volunteers from Mother’s Against Drunk Driving “MADD” and the Ocoee police union also providing support.
