Fargo police arrested eight, West Fargo arrested three.

Moorhead Police did not have numbers available, but the Minnesota State Patrol arrested two in the Moorhead area, fewer than a typical weekend despite extra DWI patrols.

Statewide, there were 339 arrests reported in Minnesota, compared with 250 on a non-holiday weekend.
