NORTHWOOD - A sobriety checkpoint operated Friday night into this morning on Woodville Road netted no drunk drivers but did garner a few other citations.
The checkpoint was conducted by Northwood Police in conjunction with the Lucas County DUI Task Force in the 2500 block of Woodville Road from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. During the operation, 489 vehicles came through the checkpoint, and 35 were diverted for further investigation.
Of those 35, there were no arrests for operating a vehicle while under the influence.
In total, four citations were issued during the operation, including one for expired plates; one for no operator's license; and two for no seat belt.
One warrant arrest was made on a subject for failing to appear on a dangerous drugs charge in Wood County, and several warrants out of Toledo.
Oregon Police did arrest an individual for OVI, involved in an injury crash on Interstate 280, a short distance from the checkpoint, according to a news release.
Officers from the Oregon and Walbridge police departments, the Lucas County Sheriff's Office, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol participated in the operation. The Ohio Department of Transportation assisted in setting up the area.
