Six Arrested at DWI Checkpoint

New York State Police reported six DWI arrests at a holiday weekend sobriety checkpoint in Broome County.

The drivers were nabbed in less than two-and-a-half hours at the roadblock on Route 17C in Endwell.

The checkpoint was set up at 11:00 p.m. Friday. The final arrest was made at 1:22 a.m. Saturday.

State police Captain Eric Janis told WNBF News the drivers face DWI and other charges.

Blood alcohol levels of the suspected drunk drivers were measured at between 0.12 percent and 0.18 percent.

Janis said the number of arrests was “a lot” for the time the checkpoint was in operation, although he said there’ve been similar results previously.

A seventh driver also was arrested by state police over the weekend for suspected drunken driving after a crash in Broome County.

Those arrested were from Endwell, Johnson City, Binghamton, Castle Creek and Candor.
