          DUIs down over New Year’s

          During what has traditionally been one of the year’s busiest nights for local DUI enforcement, the Oxford Police Department reported few arrests associated with driving while under the influence.

          Between Dec. 16 and Monday, OPD officers made 15 arrests on DUI charges, however, just three of these DUI arrests were made on New Year’s Eve, said Cpl. Hildon Sessums with the OPD DUI Enforcement Unit.
