DUI Arrests Up In Tennessee–Several Made In Coffee County

DUI2A Tennessee Bureau of Investigation report says there were more Tennessee residents charged with driving under the influence in 2014 than 2013.
The report, which is submitted to lawmakers, says law enforcement agencies arrested 29,544 around the state for the offense in 2014. That’s 639 more people arrested for DUI than in the previous year.
Officials say in some cases, the increase is due to new techniques that include analytic software to predict when and where drunken drivers might crash and focusing more efforts around establishments that serve alcohol.
Manchester Police Chief Mark Yother says his officers madeĀ 63 DUI arrests in 2014. Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell says in his town there were 64 DUI arrests made last year.
