8 arrested on DUI charges after patrols

Eight people were arrested on DUI charges over the weekend as a result of police patrols in the Centre Region, the Centre County Alcohol Task Force reported.

The charges are pending as police are waiting for blood-alcohol test results to come back, said Ferguson Township Sgt. Ryan Hendrick, the task force’s enforcement coordinator.

In addition, five people were cited with underage drinking.

The patrols consisted of officers from police departments in Ferguson Township, Patton Township, Spring Township, Bellefonte and State College.

The patrols yielded two non-traffic citations, 21 traffic citations and 79 warnings.
