ELKHART — Of the 62 arrests reported in Elkhart County over the Fourth of July weekend, nearly one-third were alcohol related.

According to booking reports from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department — which also accounts for Elkhart city and Goshen city police department arrests — 20 of the 62 arrests made July 3-7 were alcohol related.

Of those 20 arrests, 17 were operating while intoxicated charges. Two arrests were tied to public intoxication and one was illegal possession/consumption/transportation of alcohol.

By comparison, the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department reported three alcohol-related arrests (two OWIs, one public intoxication) July 1 and July 2.
