It's a public safety dragnet that adds a whole new meaning to the term 'beer bust.'

A statewide DWI enforcement campaign, called "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over," got results as officers were out in force along with holiday revelers.

The Associated Press reports more than 2,000 impaired drivers were arrested on Minnesota roads during the holiday DWI crackdown last month. Minnesota law enforcement officers arrested 2,551 drivers in December. A similar DWI crackdown in December of 2011 resulted in 2,600 DWI arrests.
