Brewfest event increased number of DUI's last Saturday

LEWISTON, ID - The Annual Lewiston Brewfest kept local law enforcement agencies busy on Saturday.

According to the Lewiston Police Department there was a significant increase in DUI's after the Brewfest ended at the Nez Perce County fairgrounds. One accident at Thain and Burrell was a direct result of drinking and driving.

LPD Captain Tom Greene said even though a few made poor choices, the fact that there were more than forty cars left in the parking lot overnight is encouraging, as people are finding a sober ride home.
