Cameron County DA warns against driving while drunk
Cameron County District Attorney Luis V. Saenz reminds the public that if they’re caught drinking and driving this holiday season, they will be arrested.
Saenz says there has been an increase of intoxication manslaughter cases in the area—especially among young adults.
"The message is very simple: We're not here to preach about drinking, that's your personal decision," Saenz said. "But, we are here to tell you: If you are caught, you will be arrested and be held accountable."
Law enforcement agencies advise those planning to drink this holiday season to stay at home, arrange for a designated driver to pick you up or contact a taxi service.
It is also important to know that those that exercise their rights to the ' No Refusal Law', will have to take a blood test.
