"No refusal" arrests up for Memorial Day

Austin police announced that they arrested 68 people through the first three days of their "No Refusal" initiative for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

In 2011, police arrested 59 people through the entire four-day weekend. This year's effort began Friday night and continues through 5am Tuesday morning.

Officers made 26 arrests on Friday night, 23 on Saturday night, and another 19 on Sunday night, according to APD figures. Police are concerned about the pace of arrests, but hope that Austinites simply don't drink and drive.

In addition to stepped up enforcement on the streets, officers are enforcing Boating-while-Intoxicated laws on Austin-area lakes.
