BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement agencies across North Dakota who deployed extra patrols this spring to prevent underage drinking issued 232 total citations.

The state Transportation Department says the enhanced enforcement took place from April 1 through May 17.

Citations included 54 counts of minor in consumption of alcohol and 29 counts of minor in possession. There were four drunken driving arrests, 22 other alcohol-related citations, 14 drug-related citations and four open container citations.

Traffic stops by the added patrols also resulted in two felony arrests, six warrants served, 33 speeding tickets and four seat belt citations.

Additional traffic safety enforcement is funded by federal grant money.
