Brooklyn Heights Drunk Driver Arrests: 'Like Shooting Fish in a Barrel'

The NY Sun -- via the Brooklyn Heights Blog -- reports that arrests for drunken driving in Brooklyn Heights and a few other affluent neighborhoods have nearly doubled this year.

According to the Sun, drunken-driving arrests are often a result of sting operations. A lawyer who defends accused drunken drivers said, "My clients aren't hardened criminals; for the cops, its like shooting fish in a barrel."
