A DUI saturation patrol in Old Town on Saturday night yielded a handful of arrests – but none for drunken driving, police said Monday.

The patrol ran from 10:30 p.m. Saturday to 2:30 a.m. Sunday, Lt. Doug Nolte said. A total of 31 car stops were made, with 23 seatbelt violations cited and 18 traffic infractions ticketed.

One minor was arrested for being in possession of alcohol, two were arrested for carrying an open container and two more for driving with a suspended license, Nolte said.
