OVI checkpoint Friday night in Butler County


The Butler County OVI Task Force planned an OVI checkpoint Friday night in Hamilton.

The checkpoint was scheduled to operate from 6 to 10 p.m. on northbound U.S. 127 (Martin Luther King Boulevard) at Walnut Street.

In addition to the checkpoint, there were to be saturation patrols in the area as part of the task force’s continuing effort to reduce OVI-related crashes resulting in injuries and fatalities.

State law requires law enforcement to announce times and locations of sobriety checkpoints ahead of time.
