Saturation Patrols Lead To Arrests, Tickets


The ISP stepped up patrols in Vanderburgh and Knox counties

Indiana State Police made seven arrests and issued dozens of tickets during weekend patrols in Vanderburgh and Knox counties. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

The ISP says saturation patrols in the Evansville area led to 28 traffic tickets, 28 traffic warnings, and two arrests for driving while intoxicated.

The ISP also cited an Illinois man for reckless driving for allegedly driving 99 mph on Highway 41.

Troopers also ticketed two female juveniles for possession of marijuana and alcohol, and arrested an Evansville man on a motorcycle after fleeing from troopers for a traffic violation.

The rider’s passenger was arrested for an outstanding warrant.

Meanwhile in Knox County, patrols netted three drug related arrests and five arrests for driving while intoxicated.
