Denton police arrested 27 people and issued 257 traffic citations on alcohol-related charges during a special crackdown related to Labor Day.
The crackdown was from Aug. 19 through Sept. 5.
Ryan Grelle, a spokesman for the police department, said traffic officers made 22 arrests on charges of driving while intoxicated, and charged two minors with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Police arrested two people who were passengers in cars with drivers arrested on DWI charges. The two were charged with possession of alcohol. One minor who was a passenger in a vehicle was charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol.
Of the DWI arrests, one was a felony — being the third such arrest; two were second such arrests for the drivers; three were open container cases, Grelle said, and five drivers had a blood alcohol content of 0.15 or greater.
A blood alcohol content of 0.08 is the legal limit.
