DWI checkpoint jails two

June 25, 2012

The "BATmobile" came to Newton during the weekend, and while it didn't feature any caped crusader, it did help remove law-breakers from area streets.

Newton Police Department partnered with N.C. Highway Patrol and Conover Police to operate a traffic checkpoint that utilized NCSHP's "BATmobile," a mobile unit used to test the blood-alcohol level of motorists.

NPD traffic safety officer B.J. Cloninger said the operation resulted in 32 combined citations for the three police agencies. The operation also resulted in two arrests for driving while intoxicated.
