A DUI checkpoint in Grand Forks led to no arrests.

The checkpoint was held from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday night on Highway 81, one mile north of Grand Forks.

291 people passed through the checkpoint, with 21 people being pulled over for further evaluation.

Three people were pulled over for open containers, but no arrests were made.

"That's our goal, not to have a lot of impaired drivers on the roadway. We know they're out there, but if we don't get any (arrests), we're not disappointed either." Sargeant Aaron Hummel said.

Although there were no arrests at the checkpoint, the highway patrol made seven DUI arrests around the state over the weekend.
