No-refusal operation nets 14 arrests
A no-refusal drunken driving operation that occurred on the eve of Thanksgiving netted 14 DUI arrests in 14 county communities.
Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said Tuesday that 17 police agencies participated, including Batavia, Elburn, Geneva, St. Charles, Sugar Grove and the Kane County Sheriff’s Office. He said it was the largest number of agencies to participate in a no-refusal operation so far.
No-refusal operations are designed to hinder suspected drunken drivers from refusing to submit a breath test after a DUI arrest. Officers expedite the booking process and work with an assistant state’s attorney to obtain a search warrant ordering that they provide a breath or blood sample.
