Alcohol-related arrests down in Abilene this New Year's Eve


Abilene police said alcohol-related arrests were down this New Year's Eve.ABILENE, Texas -

Five people were arrested for public intoxication. One was taken into custody for DWI.

That's down from last year’s New Year's Eve when they arrested eight people for public intoxication and six for DWIs.

But dozens of wrecks kept officers busy Sunday.

“Obviously the weather played a huge role in that with all the different calls we had, all the wrecks. People were very responsible,” said Lt. Keith Shackleford, with the Abilene Police Department.
