Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers, teamed with others from Mecklenburg County ABC Law Enforcement, filed 89 charges at a DWI checkpoint on University City Boulevard late Friday evening and early Saturday.
Among the charges: 24 for driving with a revoked license, 18 for having no operators license, seven for driving while impaired, and 29 for other traffic violations.
Equipped with a large bus that was outfitted to perform breath tests for alcohol, police said the checkpoint is part of the statewide Booze It & Lose It campaign against drunken driving.
It was one of 26 such checkpoints they plan to hold throughout Charlotte over the next year, said Sgt. David Sloan of the CMPD Major Crash Investigation unit.
