West Chester announces results of OVI checkpoint

No arrests were made at last week’s OVI checkpoint in West Chester.

Pete Reising, Butler County OVI Task Force coordinator, said frigid temperatures shortened the hours of the planned four-hour checkpoint to less than two hours on westbound Tylersville Road at Crosley Way. Reising said 362 vehicles passed through the checkpoint, but there were no diversions which resulted in no citations or arrests made.

However, he said saturation patrol units that evening made 39 traffic stops that resulted in one speed citation; one citation citation for no driver’s license; three citations for driving under suspension and two misdemeanor arrests. There were no OVI arrests made during the saturation patrol.

Reising said the task force’s next OVI checkpoint will be in March.
