MILWAUKEE- A weekend drunk driving intiative in Milwaukee county results in 12 arrests.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department says  the average PAC of the offenders was 0.16. Two of the people arrested were repeat offenders.

The aggressive Driving Under the Influence initiative began Friday night and ended early this morning. 

Since January 2010, Operation Drive Sober  has resulted in the arrest of 899 repeat offenders.


Representative Jim Ott and Senator Alberta Darling have also co-sponsored a bill in the Wisconsin Legislature to make it even tougher for drunken drivers to escape the consequences of their actions.

The bill is aimed to prevent judges from finding loopholes to avoid handing out stiffer sentences.
