In Holt, like many other towns in all over the country, driving while intoxicated is a problem. A problem local Ingham County Delhi Division sheriff’s deputies are working hard to eliminate. Although there has not been an increase in the number of operating while impaired (OWI) arrests in Holt over the years, it is still a number Lt. Dennis Hull would like to see decrease. “Ideally, we would like the number of arrests for intoxicated driving to be zero,” said Hull. According to the 2014 Michigan Annual Drunk Driving Audit distributed by the Michigan Department of State Police Criminal Justice Information Center, Ingham County ranked sixth-highest in the state for number of OWI arrests with 1,093 arrests.
