The Minnesota Department of Public Safety announced Wednesday that more than 2,400 drivers were arrested for DWI during a holiday enforcement campaign Nov. 23 to Dec. 30.

The 2,407 DWI arrests is a slight drop from the 2,502 made during the 2015 holiday campaign. There were also 1,647 seat belt citations compared to 2,095 last year.

Eleven law enforcement agencies reported drivers with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .30 or higher, which is more than three times the legal limit of .08.

Some of the unusual DWI arrests include a driver and passenger switching spots in St. Paul, and a drunken driver crashing through the garage of a home in Spring Lake Park.
