Friday night at 10:30pm Troopers from Arkansas State Police Troop B and Deputies from the Lawrence County Sheriffâ€™s Office set up a â€œSobriety Check Pointâ€ on Hwy 63 at the intersection of Kentucky Street in Imboden.
Troopers and Deputies stopped vehicles, asking for Driverâ€™s License, proof of insurance and questions as to if the driver had been drinking. These type of interdiction programs are used all over the county at random times to deter drinking and driving on Lawrence County roads.
In just a matter of minutes, officers arrested two subjects from a vehicle who appeared to be under the influence of Meth. Several other minor traffic offenses were ticketed during the operation.
Troopers and Deputies both agreed, to get one person off the highway that is using drugs or drinking and driving makes it all worth it.
