The Antioch Police Department deployed special DUI patrols Saturday in a campaign to minimize alcohol-related collisions and increase drunken driving awareness during the holidays.

Officers reported making one DUI arrest and issuing 23 citations after 97 vehicle stops Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Antioch police teamed up with officers from the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office, Pittsburg and Brentwood police departments to perform roving two-person saturation patrols in eastern portions of Contra Costa County.
