            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.

            The nasty weather might have helped keep people off the streets on New Year’s Eve, reducing the number of DUIs in Oxford. (January 4, 2011, Page 1)

                  Court overturns OPD bust

                  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reversed a lower court’s decision to deny a motion to suppress evidence discovered by Oxford Police Department officers during a malicious mischief investigation in 2007.

                  OPD officers pulled over a vehicle seen leaving the area where someone had thrown something at a window in an apartment complex. Drugs and a firearm were found in the vehicle and Cahafer Benjamin and Kao Wokoma were indicted on drug and firearm charges.

                  The two men filed a motion with the U.S. District Court to suppress the evidence, claiming the officer has no reasonable suspicious to stop the vehicle. The lower court denied the motion, however, on Monday the Court of Appeals reversed their conviction and overturned the denial to suppress the evidence. (November 30, 2010, Page 2)
