LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Patrol says more than 75 impaired drivers were arrested in the state during a two-week national campaign.

Troopers arrested drivers between Aug. 15 and Monday. More than 2,000 drivers were cited for speeding, among other infractions.

Officials say troopers also seized more than 65 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop Saturday in Seward County. Two people from Arizona were arrested in connection to the case.

A grant of more than $27,000 covered overtime hours to troopers and others involved in the campaign.
