Where Were Drivers Arrested for DUIs in Washtenaw County in 2017?

January 2, 2018 DUI/OWI/DWI

We can tell where drivers were arrested for operating while intoxicated by looking at the arrest statistics by police departments. Below is a breakdown of the arrest statistics by police departments in Washtenaw County for 2017.

Many of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department arrests will be in Ypsilanti Township, as the department patrols the township. The Sheriff can also of course patrol other areas throughout Washtenaw County. The Michigan State Police arrest many drivers mainly on the highways in Washtenaw County, as that is where the MSP is charged with patrolling. With a post in Brighton, there are many arrests by the MSP that will be in the western part of the county. These cases are usually charged in the 14A-3 District Court in Chelsea or the 14A-4 District Court in Saline.
