There was one DUI checkpoint in Wood County Friday night and another scheduled for Saturday night.

Sheriff Jeff Sandy said more than 240 people went through the latest DUI checkpoint on West Virginia Route 14 Elizabeth Pike last night in Mineral Wells and no one was arrested for driving under the influence.

Sheriff Sandy said this is part of the trend they are seeing of less drunk driving arrests.

Wood County Sheriff's officers report DUI arrests were down 50 percent last year.

In Vienna Saturday night police are having a DUI checkpoint on Rosemar Road at Park Drive from 10 p.m. Saturday until 2 a.m. Sunday.
