Authorities say drunken driving is up throughout Butte County compared to last year's Independence Day weekend.

Law enforcement officials throughout eight counties involved in the "Avoid the 8" anti-driving under the influence campaign said that five individuals were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs between midnight Friday through midnight Saturday, according to law enforcement officials. Last year, two were arrested during the same time period.

Officers will continue the anti-drunken driving saturation through midnight Sunday. Additionally, CHP throughout the state have all available officers patrolling freeways and county roads throughout the weekend.
