Pre-Halloween DUI Crackdown Targets Hollywood
It was hot today, but the Los Angeles Police Department will bring the real heat this weekend with a pre-Halloween DUI crackdown.
Party people should beware: One of the targets is Hollywood. The LAPD says it wants you to know the time and location of its anti–drunk driving operations so that maybe you'll think twice about getting behind the wheel after one too many. It could save lives, cops say.
