(August 27, 2019) - The following are the Cape Coral Police Department’s DUI arrests between August 12th and August 26th, 2019. This edition contains three persons more than twice the legal limit; three stops made for speeding (two at twice the speed limit); six who either crashed or left the roadway; and one arrestee who finds himself in this release for a second consecutive time. These arrests do NOT include the one arrested during the August 24th “Saturation Saturday” enforcement operation; the news release for that arrest and operation can be found here.
