Police made 16 arrests and charged people with 89 crimes at a DWI checking station in north Charlotte Friday night and Saturday morning.
The initiative on West W.T. Harris Boulevard near Harris Center Drive was in conjunction with the Governor's Highway Safety Program, which is cracking down on drunken driving over the holiday weekend.
Thirteen people were charged with driving while impaired. The greater portion of the night's citations were for minor offenses – people with expired license plates, insurance stops or inspections that weren't up to date, but police also issued two child seat violation citations and made arrests on five drug charges.
Officers also served three arrest warrants during the four-hour event.
