State Patrol St. Pat’s Arrests 19 Mar 12

It was a busy St. Patrick’s Day for the Minnesota State Patrol. Officers arrested 43 impaired drivers — 21 of those in the Twin Cities metro area. Lt. Eric Roeske says that’s a slight increase from last year, when troopers made 35 arrests. There was one fatal crash in Eagan, though it’s not clear at this time what caused that accident.
