UT Police Almost Double DWI and Alcohol Arrests

Austin DWI Lawyer

The number of DWI and public intoxication arrests made by University of Texas Police has nearly doubled in the last year.

"There are driving while intoxicated cases. There are public intoxication cases. So, alcohol use in general is a big concern for the University of Texas Police Department," Officer William Pieper with UTPD Crime Prevention said.

In 2003, UTPD made 18 DWI arrests and 59 public intoxication arrests. In 2004, those numbers nearly doubled.
