Four people were arrested for driving under the influence during a DUI check lane over the weekend in downtown Wichita, police said.

The four were among 238 vehicles checked between 10:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the 400 block of South Washington, Capt. Doug Nolte said. In addition, a 27-year-old man agreed to submit to blood tests after he appeared to be under the influence of something.

He had an infant girl in the vehicle with him at the time, police records indicate. He could be arrested later depending on what the blood tests reveal.

One minor was found to be in possession of alcohol and three others were cited for having open containers, Nolte said. Eight adults were given citations for not wearing seat belts. A total of 76 citations were issued during the check lane project.

Among the agencies assisting Wichita police in the check lane were the Kansas Highway Patrol, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office and Sedgwick County Emergency Management.
