OVI checkpoint scheduled for tonight in Butler County

An OVI checkpoint will be held tonight on University Boulevard at First Avenue in the city of Middletown.

The northbound lanes will be checked from 6:30 p.m. to no later than 11 p.m., the Butler County OVI Task Force announced.

There also will be another sobriety checkpoint Saturday evening in Butler County. The time and location of that checkpoint will be released Saturday.

State law requires law enforcement to announce the times and locations of OVI checkpoints in advance.

The task force said checkpoints, along with increased patrols in the area, are part of their continuing effort to reduce OVI-related crashes resulting in injuries and fatalities.
