Almost two dozen people are facing DWI charges after a three-day crackdown on drunk driving around Harris County.

The sheriff's office went looking for drunk drivers over the Memorial Day holiday. They arrested 22 drivers for DWI. The crackdown also led to one charge of driving while under the influence of drugs, six charges of possession of a controlled substance, two charges of evading arrest, 71 traffic citations, the serving of 16 criminal warrants and the seizure of a vehicle, 18 grams of cocaine and $3,000 in cash.

Sheriff's reserve deputies patrolled waterways during the holiday break to emphasize that intoxicated boating is just as serious a crime. No charges resulted, however.
