New Year's Eve celebrations may come to an early halt this weekend for those busted for drinking and driving in Fargo.

Anyone arrested in Fargo for driving under the influence or actual physical control of a vehicle while under the influence will be kept in custody until they can appear in court rather than having the option of posting $500 bail over the weekend.

The change begins at 6 p.m. Friday and will remain in effect until 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Fargo Municipal Court Judge Tom Davies made the temporary change in the court's bond schedule Wednesday "in hopes of deterring those who drink and drive," according to a news release.
