AUSTIN -- Police arrested 24 people for drunk driving during 2013's 'No Refusal' initiative this New Year's Eve, according to the Austin Police Department.
The Home for the Holidays: Arrive Alive initiative began Dec. 31. Officers were out in full force to watch for aggressive drivers, speeders and drivers under the influence of alcohol.
The 'No Refusal' initiative allows police to get a search warrant for a blood test if a suspected drunk driver refuses to take a breathalyzer test.
During this year's initiative, 14 people gave breath tests and 10 had their blood drawn, but only one person consented to the blood draw.
Police said it's not possible to compare those numbers to last year's New Year's Eve, because the 'No Refusal' initiative ran for multiple days last year.
Police said the highest blood alcohol content registered last night was .201.
