15 Arrested in Roadside Safety Checks

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Fifteen people spent the night in jail after getting caught in a roadside safety check.

State troopers teamed up with Rockford Police for the checkpoint at 6th Street and Benton Street near downtown.

Officers picked father’s day weekend as a way to discourage us from drinking and driving not only for this holiday, but also for the Fourth of July in just a few weeks.

Troopers say one person was arrested for DUI, 14 others for allegedly having alcohol or drugs.
