Oklahoma County sheriff deputies arrested seven people and wrote 145 tickets and issued 42 warnings Saturday night as they manned a DUI checkpoint in western Oklahoma City.

The deputies set up along the 300 block of North MacArthur and arrested five people on driving while intoxicated complaints, according to a news release Sunday.

One man was arrested on outstanding criminal warrants and another was arrested on a possession of marijuana complaint.

The highlights of the DUI checkpoint were posted throughout the evening on the department's Twitter account.

At 12:48 Sunday morning, one tweet described an arrest made by the deputies. It also included a photo of a man in a brown jacket attempting to walk a straight line.

“Another DUI,” it read. “He could barely stand up straight.”

Five-hour operation

Other tweets poked fun at the date — April 20 — a day that holds a special significance for marijuana users.

“First 4/20 celebration arrest ... some weed and paraphernalia,” the tweet reads. “Puff, puff ... you can't pass.”

The checkpoint was in operation about five hours, beginning Saturday about 10:30 p.m.
