Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Police stepped up patrols overnight looking for drivers that may have had too much to drink.

Super Bowl Sunday is a big day for police just like it is for football fans.

The big event is one of the busiest nights of the year for drunk drivers and overnight, state police and several local law enforcement agencies set up DUI checkpoints targeting impaired drivers.

Later today, we will bring you the officials numbers on tickets and arrests made last night.
