LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - Despite warnings from the Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies about increased patrols to curb drunk driving, officers logged more than a half dozen DWI and other alcohol-related arrests in Gregg County this weekend.

Two offenders had juvenile passengers, police said.

Twenty-five-year-old Freddie Roland Wilbarger, of Longview, was caught Saturday by Longview police for drunk driving with a child passenger under 15 years of age. He was released from jail Saturday on $10,000 bond. Wilbarger has a previous drunk driving conviction in Gregg County.

Early this morning, DPS troopers arrested 23-year-old Johnny Luke Morrison, of Longview, also for DWI with a child passenger under 15 years of age. He posted $5,000 and was released from jail later this morning.

Among the other weekend arrests, according to the Gregg County Jail, were:

Juan Olvera-Monzon, 19, of Marshall, arrested Saturday for open container and minor in possession of a alcoholic beverage, by DPS troopers, released on payment plan for $370 in fines Saturday;

Edgar Miniz Zuniga, 18, of Longview, arrested Saturday by DPS troopers for DWI, and released Saturday on $1,000 bond;

Jose Andrade-Cortes, 36, of Marshall, arrested Saturday by DPS for open container, having no driver's license, failure to maintain financial responsibility and failing to signal a lane change, and released Saturday on payment plans for $720 in fines;

Jairo Rodriguez, 35, of Longview, arrested today by DPS troopers for DWI, remains jailed on $2,500 bond; and,

Samuel Rodriguez Vasquez, 25, of Ore City, arrested Sunday by DPS troopers for DWI and a warrant on a motion to revoke his Upshur County probation for a previous DWI conviction, remains jailed on $6,500 bond and an immigration detainer.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, drunk driver-related crashes in 2011 resulted in 1,039 deaths.

The Labor Day "No Refusal Weekend" for DWI-related offenses continues through Tuesday morning. In the past two weeks, DPS and local police departments have said that, upon the arrest of a suspected drunk driver, he or she will be asked if they would submit to blow into a breath-test instrument or take a blood test.

If the driver refuses and says "No" to a test, officers will obtain an immediate search warrant signed by an on-call judge to have blood drawn by a certified nurse on staff at the Smith County Jail.  The blood will then be analyzed to determine whether the driver's blood-alcohol concentration is 0.08 or higher, the legal limit for driving in Texas.
