DWI's Rise Drastically in Big Lake
Driving While Intoxicated arrests in Big Lake have increased dramatically in the past three months.
The Reagan County Sheriff's Department used to make around 20 DWI arrests in a year... They now have 21 through the first three months of 2016.
"I think you can point to a couple of reasons for that," Sheriff Jeff Garner said. "One is that our economy has seen a downturn, so more people are drinking. The other is that there are more bars open now than we've had in the recent past."
