SPOKANE, Wash. -- The results are in.

Authorities released the number of drunk drivers they pulled over during the holiday season.

It was part of a special campaign called Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, which ran between Nov. 21 and Jan. 1.

In Spokane, Pend Oreille and Ferry Counties, police stopped and arrested 219 drivers for driving under the influence. That’s up from last year’s tally of 197 during the same time frame.

Statewide, law enforcement stopped more than 3,400 drivers.
