Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies were busy over the Fourth of July weekend conducting DUI arrests around the county. Officials say from July 1st through July 6th, 14 deputies conducted 61 traffic stops that resulted in ten DUI arrests. Included in those arrests were one super extreme DUI over a .215 blood alcohol content, three extreme DUIs, two drug-related DUIs and four other misdemeanor DUIs. On a good note, deputies came across 16 people that were designated drivers. Each person was part of a group that had agreed not to drink and designate themselves as the exclusive driver for their time out and about. Officials say it costs very little to plan for a designated driver, but benefits to our citizens and visitors to the county are immeasurable.
