Between 5 p.m. and 2 a.m., 54 traffic stops resulted in five DUII arrests and four other arrests.

Five individuals were arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants during a special patrol conducted by the Columbia County Sheriff's Office March 15.

"If we caught five, you know we missed 25 that night," Sheriff Brian Pixley said at a Columbia County Board of Commissioners meeting Wednesday. "That's kind of a humbling number. But at least we're trying to make that difference and keep our county a little safer."

At the board meeting, Pixley also noted that the investigation into the fatal accident on the night of March 31 on Canaan Road showed that alcohol "may have been a factor."
