Colonel Ann C.

The arrests stemmed from several motor vehicle crashes and/or motor vehicle stops. No serious injuries were reported.

“Anyone who chooses to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs poses a tremendous risk to everyone on our roads,” Colonel Assumpico said. “We are fortunate that no deaths or serious injuries resulted from the alleged actions of these individuals.
