Police out in force this weekend
“With this being the last extended weekend of the summer, many people are making plans to celebrate — going to parties and going to the lake, getting together with friends to enjoy the weekend. Unfortunately, many of the partygoers get intoxicated and get behind the wheel.”
Hawkins said that the long weekend would also see increased travel.
“Due to the extended weekend and it being the weekend before Louisiana Tech is back in, there will be an increase in the number of motorists in and around Lincoln Parish,” he said.
