Plainfield police made three drunken-driving arrests and two drug arrests during the St. Patrick's Day crackdown.

During the enforcement, 97 people also received occupant restraint citations, 42 of which were issued during nighttime enforcement hours, police said.

The enforcement was part of joint efforts between Plainfield police and other state and local law enforcement agencies and was funded by federal traffic safety grants through IDOT's Division of Traffic Safety. The effort is part of the statewide "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" campaigns.

Plainfield traffic Sgt. Eric Munson said two of the DUI arrests were made Friday, March 14 and one was made Monday, March 17. Two people were also arrested for possession of cannabis, he said.
