Foxboro Police See An Alarming Spike In Drunk Driving Arrests

FOXBORO (CBS) – The town of Foxboro has seen a dramatic increase in drunk-driving arrests.

The numbers have doubled from last year and police are worried it could get worse.

Officers haven’t yet figured out why the increase has happened.

Some theorize it’s the influx of new restaurants and bars in town, and the new patrons they’re attracting from outside of town.

In response, just last week, a letter from police went out to all 42 liquor license holders in town, warning them not to over-serve.

Meanwhile, patrol officers will remain vigilant and will be keeping a close watch on drivers.
