Rochester police officer recognized for DWI arrests

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) --  A local law enforcement officer has gone above and beyond to keep us safe from drunk drivers, and Monday he was recognized for his commitment to putting DWI offenders behind bars.

Officer Yemane Berhane arrested three impaired drivers in one 8 hour shift back on Jan. 6. The three arrests in a row are also known as a hat trick.

The effort is part of the Minnesota's Towards Zero Deaths program, which means police are stepping up DWI enforcement.

Officer Berhane was awarded a hat and pin, recognizing his hard work.
