AUSTIN -- A "No Refusal" weekend continues through New Year's Eve.

The program began Friday night and lasts until 5 a.m. Tuesday. With the initiative, the Austin Police Department is allowed to get a blood search warrant for anyone who refuses a breathalyzer test.

New numbers from Sunday night show that police arrested 23 people. Fourteen of those gave a breathalyzer test and nine had their blood drawn.
