Hopkins Avoids DWIs Over New Year’s Eve

Police didn’t make any drunken driving arrests while residents were ringing in 2013.

Residents appear to have heeded officers’ safety warnings and avoided drunken driving on Hopkins’ streets over the New Year’s holiday.

Hopkins police didn’t make any drunken driving arrests on New Year’s Eve, Police Sgt. Michael Glassberg said. Patrols out at the time reported that the night was quiet. Many people used public transportation or taxis.

Statewide, troopers made 25 driving while impaired arrests between 6 p.m. Dec. 31 and 8 a.m. Jan. 1., State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske tweeted. There were no fatal crashes on interstates or U.S. or state highways during that period.
