Monday, March 17 is St. Patrick's Day and the police will be ready so beware. A Prince George's County Police press release stated:

PGPD to Conduct St. Patrick's Day Sobriety Checkpoint.

Last year, nearly 550 drivers were arrested for DUI across Maryland on the St. Patrick's Day weekend. We're committed every day to protecting our citizens against those who choose to drink and drive but especially on what has proven to be a dangerous holiday on the roads.

The Special Operations Division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint next Monday, March 17, 2014, from 6:00 pm to 12:00 am. The Maryland State Police will join our officers in stopping drivers in the 7900 block of Annapolis Road in Lanham.

The PGPD wants to ensure revelers rely on more than luck to make it home safely on St. Patrick's Day. If you're planning an evening of celebration, please plan ahead. Choose a designated driver, commit to calling a cab or try SoberRide. The program will run on St. Patrick's Day from 4:00 pm - 4:00 am. It offers free cab rides. The number is 1-800-200-TAXI.

For more information, contact the Prince George's County Police Department's Media Relations Division at (301) 772-4710.

They will be ready to arrest and we will be ready to defend.

If you are facing criminal or traffic charges in Maryland state or federal court, call Leonard R. Stamm of Goldstein & Stamm, P.A. at 301-345-0122 for a free consultation.
