Another no-refusal weekend gets underway tonight

HOUSTON Harris County District Attorney Pat Lykos wants to make sure the roads are safe over the holiday. The no-refusal weekend will begin at 10pm and will last through Monday. Blood samples will be taken from suspected DWI drivers if they refuse to take a voluntary breath test.

Last year, the no refusal program led to 247 DWI-related charges during the Memorial Day weekend.
