We warned you.
The L.A. County Sheriff's Department today is memorializing not only those who died serving our country, but those who were served too much and decided to drive. Here's the DUI damage for Memorial Day Weekend so far:
Starting at 12:01 a.m. Friday and lasting though midnight Saturday 332 people have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in the areas patrolled by the department and other local agencies, according to a sheriff's statement.
That doesn't include cities, such as L.A., with their own departments, and it doesn't include the entire weekend.
No, there will be more to come.
In case you missed it, here's our list of Memorial Day Weekend DUI checkpoints. Study it. Stay safe.
[Update at 12:19 a.m. Tuesday]: Updated figures through midnight Sunday put the number of DUI arrests at 529 in areas patrolled by the sheriff's department and other local agencies.
The statewide CHP number for that period is 1133, according to City News Service.
