DWI arrests increase as stay at home order continues

One positive from the governor’s stay at home order seemed to be the initial drop in DWI arrests. Sadly, those numbers have steadily increased each weekend. Here is a breakdown of DWIs each weekend since March 20 in Minnesota:

  • May 1-4: 164
  • April 24-27: 143
  • April 17-20: 133
  • April 10-13: 118
  • April 3-6: 109
  • March 29-April 1: 94
  • March 20-23: 126

The average number of DWI arrests each weekend before COVID-19 was 265.
