Fargo police are fed up: Robbery, DUI arrests up in 2011 crime stats
FARGO -- After making a record 1,127 drunken driving arrests last year, Fargo police are "fed up" and considering changing their message, Chief Keith Ternes said Wednesday as he unveiled last year's crime rates.
The number of DUI arrests jumped by 252, or 29 percent, over 2010's count.
For years, police and others have beaten the drum with campaigns and messages preaching the risks and dangers of impaired driving, Ternes said.
