Two DUI checkpoints near Siesta Key resulted in 104 citations and 10 DUI arrests during Memorial Day weekend.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office reports that one of those arrests gave one driver his fourth DUI charge.

One checkpoint was set up Friday night at Bay Island Park on Siesta Drive. The other was Saturday morning at Stickney Point Road and Avenue A.

Deputies also made nine arrests on other charges, including possession of alcohol by a minor, drug possession and driving with a suspended license.

“To remove 10 impaired drivers from Sarasota County roads over the holiday weekend made all citizens safer,” said Sheriff Tom Knight.
