Spring, Texas – December 28, 2018: The Harris County Precinct 4 Constables Office and Harris County Sheriff’s Office have joined forces for phase 2 of their Holiday Patrol Initiative.

This weekend, dozens of deputies will hit the streets to combat drunk drivers in North Harris County.

“Constable and Sheriff Deputies will be out in full force to locate and arrest motorists who have made the choice to get behind the wheel while intoxicated or under the influence of any illegal substance,” Herman said.

According to Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman, over 100 drunk driving arrests were made this time last year.

“We’re going to be trying to find out where they came from, what bar, and we’ll be collaborating and working our investigation through our district attorney’s office to file charges if we’re able to,” Herman said.

Herman said that phase 1 of this initiative yielded 37 arrests of suspected drunk drivers and believes that number will double by the end of the New Year’s holiday.

Officials recommend finding a dedicated driver before going out or utilizing one of the many forms of transportation like taxis, Uber or Lyft.

“In North Harris County, if you choose to drink and drive, there is a very high probability you’re going to jail.” Herman said.
