Two women with a history of drunken driving were arrested during an emphasis patrol targeting motorists under the influence, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
The emphasis kicked off at 8 p.m. Friday in southeastern King County when four deputies and a sergeant spoke to 11 bars and restaurants about not overserving customers.
Two people were arrested that night.
A 29-year-old Buckley woman found behind the wheel of her car in a ditch in the 46800 block of 244th Avenue Southeast. Deputies said she was drunk when she drove into the ditch.
The second arrest was a 40-year-old Auburn woman taken into custody near the 16400 block of Southeast 272nd Street after a deputy spotted her car swerving.
Both women have prior DUIs, the department said. They were booked into the King County Jail.
