Deputies Round Up DUI Warrants
By J.D. Wallace, KOLD News 13 Reporter
As the Southern Arizona DUI Task Force begins a six week holiday campaign, some Tucson DUI suspects were already behind bars Wednesday morning.
They were nabbed early Wednesday morning in a roundup of suspects who didn't show up for scheduled court hearings. The first arrest of the day, thirty-year-old Armando Herber, did not make his July court date. He said he didn't have time for it.
Deputies say that taking in these DUI suspects is one more way to make the roads safer this holiday season.
"Anyone we can keep off the street for driving under the influence, whether they're impaired right now or in the past is helpful, said Pima County Sheriffs Deputy Costaki Manoleas.
Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said that authorities handled more than 140 felony arrest warrants on Wednesday and made 9 felony and 4 misdemeanor arrests.
